July 3, 2010: Shipping container art



UniqueDaily points us to this blog entry which has the details and more pics:

Quote:
Shipping containers are often repurposed as houses, apartments and studios, but Swedish artist Michael Johansson sees them as building blocks for his sculptures. In a new exhibit in UmeŚ, Sweden, Johansson stacks shipping containers, shipping pallets, trash cans, a volvo, a tractor and an old RV to create art that any hipster would be jealous of. The result is Self Contained, a three dimensional temporary wall that is a fascinating collage of textures, colors and repurposed objects.
Go to the site to see the wall from an angle, which makes the installation clearer.

I'm in favor of this sort of thing. It's not great, but it's certainly random. It's also temporary; I think it should be permanent, a piece of public sculpture.

Repurposed.

It's funnier if you think the dude played tetris with real objects.

First glance, I thought he had painted an old shipping container to look like the objects in it. After seeing the other pics, it looked like a pile of trash.

Uh-oh. Now the toilet inside that camper is going to leak all over the back wall.

I don't like it. It looks worse than the building behind it.

art or not I would hate to have to live next to that thing

He was trying to think outside the box.
