Ugo Rondinone / Seven Magic Mountains

Ugo Rondinone-1-Design Crush

 

Las Vegas isn’t one of my favorite places (sorry, Nevada), but I’d gladly make a trip west to see Ugo Rondinone‘s Seven Magic Mountains public art piece with my own eyes. The Swiss artist’s installation sits just south of Vegas smack in the middle of the desert, each of the seven towers of locally-sourced limestone masses standing between 30 and 35 feet tall. The neon painted columns appear either lined up in a row or clustered together depending on where you’re standing. The monumental piece of land art will be on view for two years as of May 2016.

Courtney Mattison / Our Changing Seas Series

Courtney Mattison-1-Design Crush

 

Courtney Mattison creates amazing large-scale sculptural installations, the most impressive of which is a series of three called Our Changing Seas. The first is based on interviews conducted with marine researchers, artists, and marine environmental professionals, the second depicts a 360º transition of a healthy coral reef to a bleached one and back again, and the third explores the rapid transition corals in the tropics and subtropics are making as a result of climate change.

Allison Kunath

Allison Kunath-1-Design Crush

 

A mixed bag of illustration projects from Venice, California-based Allison Kunath. The thing they all have in common? An underlying theme of connectivity, each one exploring different aspects of the word, such as connection to self, connection to others, and connection to nature.
