Thousands of Tiny Things Making Art.

By caseymullins |

So technically this is yarn bombing...

There are a lot of art installments that I just don’t understand. I saw one here locally that was a giant room with pieces of yarn strung from one corner to another. That’s it. Yarn. Corner to corner. I’ve seen others that are pretty cool, the Indianapolis Museum of Art has a thick glass floor that is held up by thousands of tiny figures with upturned palms. I’m never the one to stand back and say “My kid could do that” or “What the…?” because this is someone’s life work. I may not understand it, but I can at least respect it. I try really hard to expose my daughter to very different kinds of art, especially contemporary, and while she may not understand everything that goes into them either, she has a good eye for what’s cool and what’s really, really cool.

Art Made of Tiny Things

Thousands of Cars

Imagine taking 2,500 toy cars (I'm sure I have at least half that under my couches) and composing them into a giant rainbow swirl. That's exactly what UK artist David T. Waller did with his art installation Cars Atlas-Rainbow.

    I love contemporary art. This was a great piece Casey. You’re from Utah so I’m assuming you may have visited Hole ‘N the Rock? They had a jeep constructed of license plates and tools welded together. It was so rad!
