17:19// J. is not coming over until 7:30/8 to watch The Daily Show. I went out to do laundry and still the people haven’t moved their stuff from the wash, but that’s okay, because these images are great. Sometimes I feel like I’m living in a German Expressionist film here. Moments like these remind me of why I like architecture, even if I do not get along well with most architects (wait, that’s not true though). Light, sky, the universe, knowing a little bit about a lot, putting pieces together to create something breathtakingly beautiful. That is my purpose in life.
Berlin - Breitsheid Platz by Peter Cook 1990
Barcelona-based Penique Productions is an artist collective founded in 2007 that creates transformative installations in public spaces. To do this the group utilizes massive plastic balloons that are inflated inside buildings and other interior areas. Coupled with exterior lighting that illuminates the colored plastic, the results can be beautifully dramatic, making the new environment almost unrecognizable from the actual space.
You can see many more views of several installations on their website, and almost all of them are accompanied by videos that document the process. Penrique has upcoming projects next month at both the UB University in Barcelona, and at Galeria N2.
