Deconstructing Ways at the Sydney Public Art Festival
One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?
"It takes you a moment to realize what you are seeing: a reconstruction of the space that surrounds you, distorted but strangely more real than the street you are standing on. For a second or two you will be surprised that your own image is not actually reflected in that new street...or is it? The acute perspective has a vortex-like effect. Although you cannot walk through it, your mind is guided into another way of looking at reality, where the multiple aspects and details of any living moment are broken down and represented through a layering and overlapping of surfaces to create perspective and three-dimensional volume."
The annual open-air gallery aims to bring art to the public in unexpected spaces and to engage neighborhoods that might not see artwork on a daily basis.
