Citizen, LIGHT is TIME (2014)
"Renowned Japanese watch manufacturer CITIZEN recently unveiled a stunning installation called LIGHT is TIME at Milan Design Week. Displayed in the Triennale di Milano exhibition hall, the spectacular installation consists of 80,000 main plates (the structural bases of watches) suspended from 4,200 metal threads hooked to the ceiling. The result is a truly one-of-a-kind experience for viewers, who are enveloped in a cloud of refracting light, time frozen around them like thousands of golden rain drops." - Jenny Zhang
The artwork of Valerie Hegarty born 1967 in Burlington, Vermont, USA almost seems to hover between two worlds: those of art and real life. Much of Hegarty’s work appears to begin with a classically styled piece of “fine art”: a still life painting, or presidential portrait for example. In some way, then, the real world begins to impose itself on the work. Some frames and stretchers begin growing branches and sprouting leaves. Other paintings are riddled with bullets or burnt by fire. The story inside the painting violently mingles with a story outside of it. The painted world and the lived world meet to tempestuous result. via Hi-Fructose

And I’ve made this with red curry sauce - probably another one of this tomorrow if I don’t feel too sick
