Construction 2000

BY JUHO VIITASALO
@ VOL 14 ON OCT 01, 2016

Juho Viitasalo shares Construction 2000, a unique geometric steel sculpture in Helsinki, Finland. Its most eye catching feature is a 600 kg pyramid that seems to float in air without any support. This 10 meter tall physics defying structure has stood since 1982 and is truly unique in the world. However it is still somewhat unknown. Construction 2000 was designed by Markku Viitasalo and now his son wants to take the design to the world out of the confines of the office block where it stands in Helsinki. More information here: http://viitasalo.com/himmeli/

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 3rd, 2017.

From Thorns to Stars

"I use my work as a weapon, as a shield" In today's Presentation of the Day, "From Thorns to Stars" from PKN Richmond, BC Vol. 2, artist Vjeko Sager walks us through this theory, and process. Vjeko works primarily in the charcoal medium and describes his work as a rejection of digital art. He speaks on being excited with the idea of being misunderstood, enjoying the prospect that art could be (and often is) completely misinterpreted. Vjeko's methods and outlook are inspiring, but be sure to take a look at his fine work -- it speaks for itself.
