Swell Sculpture Festival 2014 (part 2)

In part 1, I showed animal sculptures in the Swell Sculpture Festival 2014 (part 1 – the animals). Here are some of the rest.

I suppose the one below could have been put in the ‘animals’ post, but, instead of ghosts I immediately saw them as Zygons (thank you, Doctor Who). How would biologists classify aliens?

I often find ‘artist statements’ meaningless as they don’t connect with what I experience through the artwork. However, the artist statement for the one above does connect:

Excuse me, I’m just trying to instagram my life. … [There is an] urgent need to find a balance between capturing a beautiful world and … [remembering] to live in the moment. Are you too busy taking pictures that you forget to stop and take a moment?

    I agree 100 percent with your last comment! Life is what passes you by when as you are busy taking photos/selfies… But I realise that my judging that is not mindful.

      Judgement and discrimination are awkward words to use, aren’t they? I prefer to think of them as neutral and implying something useful – we use our judgment or discrimination to make decisions – but they have come to have negative meanings.
