Sunday

One of my many random jobs is to photograph the Museum of Art and Design. Their current exhibit has installations that are made of everyday materials like..
old records, 
pots,
glasses,
spoons,
and chairs!

Doesn't it make you wanna build something fun with the stuff you have just lying around?

James Watkins said...

Love the butterflies! Great light and enjoy the perspective the onlooker gives it. If only more people wandered into art galleries...

Great! I like the interaction between the art pieces and the visitors ( I'm planning to do this with kids actually but am still wondering how to get permission to do so...).
How do you get the permission to take photographs in the museum?
Thanks, S

Hey Sophie! Unfortunately you're not allowed to take pictures at the museum. I'm only allowed to shoot because I'm the museum's photographer

I love found art...or repurposed art, or whatever it's called these days.

I'm definitely wanting to recreate some record butterflies...

Mr. Norwood said...

This is so rad!!!!!!!.......Makes me want to build something great like that....

Dionne said...

The recordiflies are lovely! How inventive to make the butterflies out of records!

jules said...

Whoa, I am pretty much in love with the flutterbys. I am definitely going to try and make some.

Zoe said...

Wow. Stealing the glasses idea and making a chandelier out of my mum's reading spectacles. It's not like she really needs them, right? She mostly just uses the staple gun on our dining room chairs and watched movies in Spanish all day. Maybe she won't even notice.

Kate said...

Wow, I LOVE the old records!

Carolyn said...

Wow that's so cool...

Terrance Gatchalian said...

Those are awesome! I always wanted to do something like that with the millions of McDonalds toys I collected from the ages of 0 - 15 (I liked happy meals). We'll see if I ever come up with something...

P.S. Completely agree with Magic Pants Jones... totally using this as an excuse from now on.

Dee said...

Wow that's amazing! Hmm I used to collect pens and pencils but I've given them away...

What I really like is that the butterflies look like they are spinning like a record - and a few are thinking of escaping through the window.

This is wild. Especially the glasses chandelier. I love it!
