Herds of life-sized Elephants roam through London’s Parks

Herds of life-sized Elephants Roam through London’s Parks for a global Conservation Project

 

 

Sixty migrating elephants pass between Piccadilly and Buckingham Palace in London’s Green Park in one of nine herds roaming throughout the city. The lumbering creatures are part of an ongoing collaboration between two nonprofits, CoExistence and Elephant Family, that explores how humans can better live alongside animals and the larger ecosystem through imaginative public art projects.

 

As its name suggests, CoExistence’s aim is to identify mutually beneficial modes of living considering that within the last century, the balance between world population and wilderness has shifted considerably: in 1937, 66 percent of global environments were intact with 2.3 billion people on Earth.

 

Today, those numbers have undergone a dramatic change, with a world population of 7.8 billion and only 35 percent of wilderness remaining.

The organization’s most recent effort brings the gargantuan animals to urban spaces throughout London that are typically closed off to wildlife. The herds can be spotted in St. James’s Park, Berkeley Square, and even the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s homes at Highgrove.

 

In addition to generating awareness of environmental crises, the installations raise funds to support grassroots organizations throughout India that promote Indigenous culture and establish technology and infrastructure that allows humans and animals to live symbiotically.

 

CoExistence plans to install approximately 500 animals around the world in the next few years, and with the help of The Real Elephant Collective, each nation will receive a herd designed specifically for the location. The collective partners with Indigenous communities from the Tamil Nadu jungle in southern India, who live alongside the real-life animals, to create the sculptural iterations that stand up to 15 feet tall and weigh nearly 800 pounds.

 

Each creature is constructed from long strips of lantana camara, an invasive weed that spreads in dense thickets and disturbs the environment and by removing the plant, the artists help to reinstate the natural ecosystem.

Ceramic Mosaics Mend Cracked Sidewalks

Ceramic Mosaics mend cracked sidewalks, potholes and buildings, in vibrant Interventions by Ememem

 

Throughout his home city of Lyon, Ememem is known as “the pavement surgeon.” The artist repairs gouged sidewalks and splintered facades with colorful mosaics that he describes as “a poem that everybody can read.”

 

Intricate geometric motifs laid with pristine tiles hug the cracks and create “a memory notebook of the city. It reveals what happened, the life in these public places,” he tells Colossal. “Here cobblestones have been picked up and thrown. There a truck from the vegetable market tore off a piece of asphalt…”

 

Ememem’s first mosaic dates back 10 years when he found himself in a damaged alley in Lyon. At that time, he already was working in ceramic and translated that practice to revitalizing the outdoor area.

 

Since 2016, he’s been consistently filling potholes and other divots throughout France. “It’s a succession of a lot of places and reflections, experiments I did before. I had done similar things, with other techniques, other supports, and finally, when this one emerged, I knew I found something that I was going to keep doing for the rest of my life,” he says.

The Unexpected Beauty of Everyday Life throughout Asia

The Unexpected Beauty of Everyday Life throughout Asia

 

 

Traveling from his home in Tokyo to cities and small villages across Asia, Ryosuke Kosuge is adept at spotting the textures and patterns that occupy local life, whether through the rocky formations surrounding Heaven’s Gate Mountain in Zhangjiajie, an array of birdcages created by a woman in Guizhou, or the wires crisscrossing a market in Nanning.

 

His arresting images approach everyday moments from a place of curiosity and display the beauty and wonder inherent in both natural and urban environments. The photographer, who works as RK, tells Colossal that he chooses destinations based on the specific mood he hopes to convey, although sometimes those decisions are spurred by a personal desire to experience local customs and cuisine.

Fabio Viale tattooed and carved marble sculptures

Fabio Viale sets tattooed and carved marble sculptures across the tuscan town of Pietrasanta

 

 

The tuscan town of Pietrasanta has been treated to a public exhibition featuring the monumental works of the sculptor Fabio Viale. The artist, who is widely known for his tattooed marble sculptures, was invited by Pietrasanta’s mayor to display a series of works conceived in dialogue with the town’s historic urban fabric.

 

Titled ‘Truly’, the exhibition was held across Pietrasanta’s most picturesque public spaces, including its piazza del Duomo and the 14th century church of Sant’agostino. responding to the ongoing pandemic, Fabio Viale interprets the meaning of our period of enforced isolation, premiering — among other works — hissculpture ‘The three graces’ within the church.

 

ITruly, an exhibition produced with the support of the Galleria Poggiali, Viale responds to the new iconography to which we are all subject — face masks.

 

The artist symbolically expresses the theme through the sculpture ‘The three graces’, set within the church of Sant’agostino. Made in white marble and featuring detailed drapery, the subjects depict three women originating from Ghardaïa, a city in Algeria.

 

Here the women wear the traditional haik, a loose, white, full-length garment wrapped around the head and body, leaving only one eye uncovered. Having visited the city of Ghardaïa on one of his frequent travels, Viale says that he wished for the artwork to focus attention on the issue of denied freedom and, at the same time, on the clichéd perception of this idea that westerners have.

The positioning of ‘The three graces’ in the church highlights its mystical and symbolic energy, and further seeks to stimulate a conversation around the issues of personal, religious and meditative freedom. This idea is also reflected in its juxtaposition with ‘Stargate’, a sculpture made out of arabescato marble from mount altissimo.

 

Comprising two monumental fruit crates joined together with a small gap left in between, the sculpture becomes both a passage and a boundary — themes associated with outcomes of new spirituality and emancipation.

Modernist birdhouses

Modernist birdhouses shaped after Palm Springs’ mid-century architecture

Wood-maker Steve Hadeka presents this adorable collection of modernist birdhouses. Existing in many civilizations since antiquity, these man-made boxes provide animals a place to nest in.

 

Inspired by modernist architecture found in Palm Springs and some parts of Miami, these birdhouses could twin with your own house while giving a safe place for birds to nest.

 

Stylish and colorful, the modernist birdhouses are both cute and functional and are made in stainless steel, spray paint and wood. ‘The culmination of 8 years of research, development and prototypes, have led me to Palm Canyon: a sweet little nod to mid-century and modern architectural styles,’ comments Steve Hadeka on Etsy, where he sells the birdhouses.

‘This fully-functioning birdhouse is built to withstand the test of time and live in the elements. Though, many of my clients choose to display these birdhouses indoors, as an art piece.’

 

The modernist birdhouses have been created with North American nesting birds in mind: from nuthatches to wrens and finches, the houses provide the perfect size for these creatures. The paint job has been doing with vibrant colors that ensure will last, even when placed outdoors. Each miniature house includes two handy clean-out ports in the back, for optional season vacuuming. A handy mounting flange is included and install.

Urban bird houses

Thomas Dambo and his crew have constructed more than 3,500 birdhouses with recycled wood and paint.

Thomas Dambo is an artist and designer specialized in building family-friendly installations from upcycled materials.

 

One of Dambo’s many interactive projects is “Happy City Birds”, an ongoing series that lies at the intersection of street art and community development.

 

The Danish artist builds bird houses across urban centers, installing the new homes against buildings, grouped on tall poles, or spaced throughout existing trees.

 

Since 2006, Thomas Dambo and his crew have constructed more than 3,500 birdhouses with recycled wood and paint. Although a large percentage of his works are concentrated in Arken, many more of them can be found dotting Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense, Horsens, Beirut, and Berlin.
