OUTSTANDING NEW SKYLINE SCULPTURES WITH MORE THAN 5000 PIECES http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/outstanding-skyline-sculptures-with-more-than-5000-pieces/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/art/outstanding-skyline-sculptures-with-more-than-5000-pieces/#comments Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:50:48 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=683 These amazing art pieces were made of what most people see as not very useful material: scrap wood. The Philadelphia-based modern artist JAMES MCNABB has carved thousands of pieces of scrap wood and carefully placed them together to form a vast city skyline creating a modern sculpture. The wooden skyscrapers, made in different shapes and sizes, look remarkably like the Manhattan skyline in New York City.

The collection, totals a staggering five thousand individual buildings also includes a huge ‘city wheel’ – which is almost five feet high. And the contemporary artist explained how the idea came about.

“I grabbed a piece of scrap wood from the bin, and without thinking, made some cuts. In a few minutes the piece started to look strangely familiar, like a screwdriver or a mini skyscraper. I grabbed another piece of scrap wood, and made another object – this time, it looked like wrench, or a table leg. In the next hour I made 15 more – I stayed up that night and worked until morning. In 24 hours I made more than 200, all intricately different from the next.”

CTRLZAK presents a contemporary take on the traditional hourglass

Among the first instruments that man perceived to measure time, the milan-based collective’s apparent hourglass utilizes the properties of traditional materials in reviewing this almost obsolete object. A mouth-blown borosilicate glass vessel provides transparency, while refined iron fillings trickle from one compartment to another. The contemporary design reveals the passage of time not only through movement, but through the creation of a small crystalline structure — revealing that time is not only obvious to the observer as a continuous motion, but through materials which can help visualize and make its passing something physical. Secondome is also showcasing pieces produced with padiglione italia, and the final pieces of the ‘from-to’ collection organized by martino gamper for valore artigiano.

The contribution of CTRLZAK to the bustling area also sees them proposing a reflection on the world of bees, and the need for them to be protected for man and the environment in which we live within the giardino del terraggio.
