Chris Jordan Can’t Stop Counting – 106,0000 Cans – 11,000 Jet Trails…

My favorite photo from Chris Jordan’s show, Running the Numbers, is the first one I saw: Jet Trails. 11,000 white jet trails set against a soft blue sky gave off an ethereal feel while evoking a sense of childhood adventure and freedom something similar to staring at airplanes and cloud formations in the sky at seven. Impulsively, I wanted to melt into the photograph and experience flight, take me into it and away from the mess of life on earth.

But regardless of my reaction to the photo, Chris Jordan’s 11,000 jet trails are a visual representation of the number of commercial flights in the U.S. every eight hours. Of course, the real meaning behind the pretty picture is the effect these thousands of jet trails have on our environment. Jordan is reminding dreamers like me that the mess is also being created in air.

Nature Art | The Ultimate Garden Design

What happens when a carpenter / artist learns about primitive techniques of building and experiments with tree saplings as a construction material? Natural organic forms of art on a grand scale.

Internationally acclaimed sculptor Patrick Dougherty is known for large-scale installations that incorporate tree saplings. Working only with these saplings, the North Carolina based artist twists and wraps his medium to create large, organic sculptures. The surrounding environment and its given materials play a significant role in shaping his sculptures. Dougherty often uses saplings gathered near the installation site, adjusting his designs to the different ways local materials bend and respond in his hands.

MOMA | The Art In Global Warming

What Happened To Us? is a textual pun –- “us” referring both to ourselves and to the United States of America. It is also of a title of a large scale drawing installation by Romanian artist, Dan Perjovski, who exhibited at MOMA in New York earlier this year.

The artist was commissioned by the gallery to draw directly onto the walls of the Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium. The drawings took two weeks to complete, during which time the gallery was open to the public to allow them to bear witness to the creative process. Perjovski’s work is inspired by political issues, both local and global, like the conflict in the Middle East or the extension of the European Union. Through witty text and incisive political images, Perjovski makes his unique voice heard and seen.
