10. 90,000 Plastic Balls Inspired by Wisterias in Monet’s Paintings
For the Le Havre’s Contemporary Art Biennale, Canada-based architects and designers at Claude Cormier + Associés Inc. paid tribute to Monet, the father of Impressionism, by assembling 90,000 plastic balls over the walkway of Le Havre City Hall. Set in five vibrant colors, the installation resembled a pop art piece that simply aimed to delight its visitors.
While art viewed inside the confines of a museum’s walls will always have its place, public outdoor art installations are truly inspiring, giving viewers a broader sensory experience. These three-dimensional works are often site-specific, meaning they were created for that particular place. Today, we’ve rounded up ten recent favorites that were each made with the viewer in mind. While some of them were intentionally created for public interaction, others are just meant to be enjoyed from a more distant view. via My Life Scoop
