Car wrecks, discarded furniture and bulky items of any kind barricaded a central city street in Wellington, New Zealand on Sunday 14th December 2008, from midnight to midnight. This rather gorgeous intervention was created by British artists Heather and Ivan Morison as part of the One Day Sculpture series.
Typographic installation by Boa Mistura. Inspired by the poem »Order is« by Louis I. Khan, the piece involves an abstract furniture composition that only makes sense when is observed from one particular point, from where you can read the quote »order is intangible«. Before that Boa Mistura worked on a vibrant community project in Vila Brâsilandia, one of the favelas in São Paulo, Brazil.
»On a stretch of 2 kilometers, seven inner city situations will be doubled on Potsdamer Straße, which was once representational for the city of Berlin and is today used very heterogeneously. On selected points of the whole street, “doubles” will appear at an interval of 70 cm from the existing objects, as if a tracing-paper duplication of a map of the city had slipped a bit away from the original beneath it. The focus thereby will be on easily overlooked street furnishings like streetlights, bus stops, and clocks.« Realtime by inges idee.
