Tara Donovan, Untitled, 2003. Styrofoam cups, hot glue.

One material, huge scale, repetition, installed in a specific space

gaksdesigns:

Using thousands and thousands of standard sewing pins artist (and MacArthur Foundation genius) Tara Donovan creates geometric shapes on immense canvases that appear almost blurred and atmospheric.

Using a singular material, simple repetition of a process.

Friendship - Agnes Martin, 1963
From MoMA’s website:

A grid connotes regulation and regularity, and therefore the human hand: natural forms as uniform as these patterns of evenly spaced horizontal and vertical straight lines are seldom visible to the unaided eye. In Friendship and other works, however, Martin draws a grid that somehow both softens the firm lines of geometry and seems to open onto a space far wider than the human sphere. Her art, she has said, “is about what is known forever in the mind”—perfection, the transcendent reality spoken of in Eastern religions. For her, the grid evokes not a human measure but a supernal one, a boundless order.

Metropol Parasol - Jurgen Mayer

'Mushroom-esque' sunshade in Seville Spain. Both sculpture and practical object. Creates a space for socialisation. 

Miranda Parkes - Fielder
For the SCAPE 7 Biennial she created two large industrial-like ‘billboards’ with grids echoing the surrounding architecture. 

Olafur Eliasson - Green River

The unexpected green hue made residents notice the river, an everyday aspect of their city they waked past without even looking at it. Making something ordinary extraordinary in order for people to realise their lack of interest in its normal form.
