Celestial Works - Michael Manning and Jeff Baij at artobjectculture
Screen shot from Celestial Works
I'm in love with this particular piece for the perfect combination of wit and wonder. It's part of a web/art/commerce project co-curated by Emilie Gervais and Lucy Chinen. Every month two artists are invited to curate or create new art objects from pre-existing items in any online store.
More about the overall artobjectculture project in this interview at Triangulation Blog. (I will add that artobjectculture delivers on the most important requirement we have for net projects: Just show us the fucking art.)
About this particular work Michael Manning said:
"We wanted to troll conceptual certificates and push the limits of an object based art project by using the most immaterial thing we could find."My response is that star clusters are the best immaterial thing anyone could hope to find.
It's an oldy but I love it - Deadwood Valentines.
Happy Valentine's Day, Cocksuckers.
