Leaving a trail of art to be found

Artist Kirsty Hall has been making a piece of art to fit in a jar everyday. On her 365jars site, she is documenting them as well as where she goes out and leaves them each day. They are numbered, and she is hoping people will find them, come to the site and register that they have found them.

It’s a simple idea, but takes a lot of dedication. Esp since the places she puts them have some kind of relationship to the jar. Not to mention it gets harder and harder to come up with new ideas and new places as times goes on. Or maybe not, maybe a project like this releases all sorts more creativity?

Books, books, or more books

Reinier de Jongh has designed a bookcase that starts as a sculpture, and expands to create a little space or even more for a lot of space for books. In my space, it would be expanded out all the way, but it’s a nice concept to think of the possibility of only using a small part for utilitarian purposes and the rest for art.

Keys!

There is a story on the Scouting New York blog about a locksmith who covered the front of his building with keys. Thousands of them. Click over and see the details, the patterns are really intricate and interesting.

  1. Thanks for mentioning my jar project, Christine. I haven’t run out of ideas yet but I am having to go further afield to find good spots to place the jars.
