One of the reasons that I like art and its projects is that there is no 'formal explanation' to art... every person can take it and interpret it as they want! So in my opinion artists are free to create what they want and in the format they want. Browsing around I found some very creative art projects from Luke Jerram and decided to show them here for you. Luke Jerram's multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations, live arts projects and gifts. Since his professional career as an artist began in 1997 Luke has created a number of extraordinary art projects which excite and inspire people around him.
Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, sculpture, and paintings. The meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art
So whatever your art concept is, sit back and enjoy some very nice art projects. Going from some glass sculptures representing microbiology to a live art project where a searchlight projects up into the night sky, you will see that Luke has some very nice ideas to show. In my opinion, besides being able to work with several forms of art, Luke is very talented and creative.
To check out further details and concepts behind these and other projects, visit Luke's website. I hope you like it! :)
These transparent glass sculptures were created to contemplate the global impact of each disease and to consider how the artificial coloring of scientific imagery affects our understanding of phenomena.
Sculptural and Perceptual studies
Jerram’s ongoing research of perception is fueled by the fact that he is colour-blind. These small perceptual experiments and sculptural studies inspire his larger scale artworks. Placing himself in unusual locations, be it in microgravity aboard a parabolic flight or in an anechoic chamber, Jerram explores the edges of perception to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of his senses.
Installation: Dream Director
The Dream Director is a new immersive installation created by Luke Jerram and his team of specialists at the Watershed Media Centre, Bristol 2007. Over a duration of 2-3 nights members of the public can sleep over in the gallery in specially constructed 'pods'. There are spaces for 20 participants each night.
The Dream Director is also a new tool for sleep science and clinical applications which raises questions about the rules of interaction and boundaries of science and art.
Aeolius is an investigation into acoustics, wind and architecture. One output from the research will be a specially designed architectural space that will resonate and sing with the wind. The artwork will tour the UK travelling from one wind swept rural location to another before finding a permanent home.
As the earth and moon move through space and time around the sun, our position also changes within this shifting triangle of spheres. Tide is a live installation controlled by the altering gravitational field of the Earth caused by this spatial relationship.
Live Art: First Breath
First breath (in development for presentation in 2010) celebrates each new life with a searchlight projecting up into the night sky. The lights are sited next to the homes of families where a new baby has just been born.
