Portrait of Jackie Chan Made Out of 64,000 Chopsticks

 Artist Hong Yi, aka Red meticulously tied batches of the 64,000 chopsticks together and strung them in rows to produce Jackie Chan’s likeness. From up close, the portrait is nothing more than a pixelated arrangement of dots. But, from afar, Chan’s smiling face emerges from the wooden sticks as another stunning example of Red’s innovative style.

Evidence 

Renowned Chinese artist and political dissident Ai Weiwei has just launched his largest solo exhibition to date, calledEvidence, in Berlin’s Martin-Gropius-Bau. The show is expansive, sprawling across 3,000 square meters and 18 rooms. The centerpiece of the exhibit is an installation called Stools, which features a staggering number of 6,000 wooden stools arranged in the atrium. The stools, collected from rural villages across northern China, date back to the Ming and Qing dynasties as well as the Republican period, expressing the centuries-old aesthetic and daily lifestyle of rural China. Packed tightly together on the floor of the atrium, the stools form a colossal and interlocked surface whose sheer size is astonishing.

I had the pleasure to see his last exhibit when it was at the AGO in Toronto and I have to say for a modern artist his work is amazing and thought provoking.

Unnumbered Sparks 

Created for the TED Conference’s 30th anniversary, the installation; a monumental net sculpture floating in the sky, spanning 745 feet between buildings, is currently on display in downtown Vancouver. A collaboration between artists Janet Echelman and Aaron Koblin. Woven from braided fibers, the ethereal net ripples and sways in the sky. The movements of the delicate form are affected by even the slightest change in the wind, creating a gently billowing mass of threads that subtly blends in with clouds, sky, and the surrounding urban landscape.
