These ethereal, constellation-like structures are the creations of Arnold Goron.
Though very different from the models I created in my high school chemistry class, the installations are actually considered molecular structures and are displayed alongside Isabel Marant’s designs.
These structures, formed out of wood and Styrofoam balls, have small motors connected to them so that they actually rotate around the clothing displays.
To see them in action visit Goron’s website.
I just discovered the amazing work of Berlin artist Jan Vormann and his incredible (and ever growing!) body of work DISPATCHWORK.
Across from Penn Station/Madison Square Garden- 7th AVE /32nd ST
Jan and his team ‘fill in the cracks’ so to speak, of damaged buildings with Lego pieces. The project began in Europe originally, where Jan would ‘repair’ buildings that suffered from World War II bomb and shrapnel damages.
Upon reading an article about his work in Sunset Magazine, I was very intrigued by the work of Andy Cao.
His beautiful installation Cloud II in Malibu, CA–which was featured in the article–was so beautiful and ephemeral that I had to find out more. After doing some more research I discovered a video of Cao himself discussing his work.
(Yes, I stole the title, but I thought it was too clever not to use myself)

I love the wistful feeling the fishing-line fence lends to the piece; enclosing the plants but still leaving an air of vulnerability to the work.

The beautiful lines of the work Cao and Perrot produce is just breathtaking.
