Installation art is created to transform the perception of a space. If you really want to think outside the wall, an installation is a way to truly commit to a life surrounded by art. It is a singular experience to have one in your home or business: a conversation starter, a statement piece, and a flashpoint for creating unmistakeable ambience.
Installation art is also a great way to galvanize commercial and common spaces like lobbies, hallways, foyers, and landings, making a trip between floors or through buildings into a unique and stimulating experience.
Do you enjoy having a large flat screen for watching movies and television, but wonder what to do with it when you’re not watching? You can transform that blank, black canvas into instant art with a piece of video work.
Whether you’re creating a focal point for entertainment at a party or keeping it on throughout the day, a video art installation can be the new urban version of a fire in the fireplace. You can also use a projector to activate an entire wall with time-based art. Both options will fill your space with color, light, and motion. If you have several works, you can easily rotate them in and out for a constant refresher-as you might imagine, video works store very easily.
Sculpture is far more than statuary, and can imbue any room with a look that is thoroughly contemporary. You may not have any wall space to spare, but have you considered the floor? What about the ceiling? Corners, mantles, and bookshelves can all become display surfaces for amazing objects. Consider mobiles- they’re not just for children anymore- which can provide a whimsical alternative to a chandelier. Display favorite sculptures on entryway tables for the full, in-the-round effect.
When thinking outside the wall, sometimes it helps to literally think outside. Adding outdoor sculpture to a garden, lawn or terrace is a great way to carry your love for art into your exterior spaces. Works range in size from small to monumental and in media from the organic to the industrial.
Built to weather the elements (and the occasional child who loves to climb), outdoor sculptures create great focal points in the landscape. A collection of several sculptures can structure a gardening scheme and turn a front or back lawn into an outdoor gallery.
