Art is the proper task of life. -Nietzsche
MIAMI – Residents and visitors of Wynwood can now enjoy the neighborhood’s first permanent artistic crosswalk, marked by a work that seeks to transform the intersection of Northwest Second Avenue and 25th Street.
The effort is part of the Miami Biennale and WADA’s ‘Wynwood Ways’, a collaboration to make the neighborhood a more pedestrian-friendly cultural destination.
Art scene spredding.
NATURE IS STORED IN A WAREHOUSE COMPLEX
Finnish Artist Ilkka Halso - “My work deals with man’s ambivalent relation to nature. It is typical for human beings to mold nature, justifying their actions by their aesthetic and economic aspirations. But nature cannot endure everything. In my photographs, control over nature has acquired a concrete form. The elements of nature have been rethought and have, for logistical purposes, been packed into modules that are easier to handle. The whole of nature is stored in a gigantic warehouse complex and the most common types of nature from soil and flora to fauna can be easily assembled into working ecosystems. What is happening? Has nature been evacuated to await better times, or has it been simplified into merchandise and absurd tableaux? I am looking into the future. I don’t like what I see.”
