Sequined Street Art by Theresa Himmer
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?
Theresa Himmer skips the spray paint, wheat pastes, and stickers when she takes to the streets.
"The sequin system [created with a series of large, shiny discs strung from plywood] is a hyper commercial product that comes from the world of advertising and display ... Within this context, the sequin's constant movement and flickering is desirable as a means of catching the consumer's eye. Meanwhile I was interested in how these visual qualities also recall how landscapes respond to changes in wind and light."
