The above pictured sculpture, Suspended Objects (2011) was created by artist Hassan Sharif from countless long strands made up of multi-colored yarns, fishing line, twine, trolling reels, string and wire, tied together and also wrapped around bits of plastic, foam and other found objects. It’s super colorful and reminds me of a big Jellyfish.

Suspended Objects is part of the Here and Elsewhere group show now on exhibit at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, previously discussed in this post, so click that link for more information!

She’s at it again! On Monday October 3rd, Crochet artist Olek covered Alamo, the famous spinning Cube sculpture by Tony Rosenthal, located in Astor Square near the Big KMart, in her trademark neon camouflage yarn! Sadly Olek’s latest public work is already no more, the yarn having been removed early last evening, but you can read about it here.
