feature art friday | yuko takada keller

i was beyond excited when i saw the google image for today. my boss at work can attest to the fact i literally squealed when i saw the alexander calder mobile in html5. and suffice to say i squealed squared when i discovered that you could spin the mobile by pulling it with your mouse. calder is one of my favourite artists, and in fact is one of the reasons i have a mobile obsession.

now, add to that mobile obsession: barely there, pale coloured, weightless paper and everybody's a winner! these installation sculptures by yuko takada keller are just heavenly. they are a breath of fresh air...air that i would like to breathe every day...ideally in my living room. if i worked in a gallery that exhibited one of these pieces, i would go to work half an hour early, and stay late every shift, just so that i could sit in the gallery and stare at it in silence.


  1. What?! How did I not know that some google images move?! And I missed it! :(

    These are seriously incredible.

  2. I love these pieces! The sense of movement is breathtaking.

    And I'm totally with you on the go early/stay late. It would be silence well spent.

  5. oh my goodness! those are soooo cool!
