Wondering what it would be like to live with big art

The other day, I was thinking about large pieces of art - I mean wall-sized paintings or installations. Then I wondered what it would be like to live with it. Then I found this article about the Facebook campus. As I looked at the pictures, I projected myself there and felt an energy. This seems reasonable to me because the artist would be imparting her or his energy into a large space.

I was wondering if anyone has lived or worked in a space with big art. Did you feel it? Did the effects wear off after awhile? I realize that being outside in nature in the biggest art of all, but I'm more focused on art created by people right now.

Linda,

My home is just about entirely filled with art.
My husband does sculpture.
I hang my photographs that are large.
We love it, and to excuse the lack of humility, most people who visit here love it, too.
We have no wall that is free of art or books.

Our garden has a sculpture made by my husband, and of course, he created the huge piece of public art, the Sun Circle, that resides in a park that spans two towns.

My art has also been purchased by some corporations and many pieces are hanging there.
I had an art agent who placed them, many in multiples.

The trick to living with art is to fall in love with it.

Been to art galleries. Art changes the atmosphere. The energy in the air. Big art does the same on a grander scale.
You feel the mindset the artist had when creating their work. Can't say that I've ever 'lived' with big art though. :p

I have grandiose visions of having a space to do my work with forms of art and imagery surrounding me.

It's just for the past five years I have been a traveler, so I've been unable to settle down and create such a space.

I will one day get there!

Please refer to a clip I posted today on a thread called "Jose Arguelles and his thoughts on UFO events in our dimension". At the 41.02 mark (through to the end of video at 43:42) he mentions a concept of the new consciousness that he thinks will evolve: Zeit ist Kunst - Time is Art. He was talking to a German audience at the time, so he spoke a little German. He says that humanity will come to understand that we will co-create planet Earth as a large piece of art! (paraphrasing, please listen to Jose for his finer sense of it).

My favourite kind of art is that kind of contemplative art that people do in a beautiful setting (a beach, for example) which adds one thing to another's beginning and then someone adds another bit and another... and so it grows.
I guess I think of creating New Earth a bit like that. We add onto each other's pieces to create a greater whole and create the biggest art work of all, and then get to live and play in it:-))

It sounds like I'll love the Jose Arguelles clip as it sounds just like this!

On the beach we might end up with something like this:

With New Earth, who knows what we'll end up with (well, I guess we do<3)

Yes, I think Jose meant that we'll start spending our excess energy in beautiful ways - when a whole lot of energy that is trapped in negatives is released.

Here are two short clips of our Sculptures by the Sea exhibition (one from Cottesloe Beach, Perth in 2017) and one from Bondi Beach headland (through to Tamarama Beach). I used to live on that headland at Bondi in the 1980's. They have been having the art exhibitions there for the past 21 years, since 1997. At the time I lived there, who could have imagined it?

I just came across the Ocean Atlas, which was assembled underwater in sections using a new technique engineered and developed by Jason deCaires Taylor.

Ocean Atlas Bahamas.jpg

Ocean Atlas Bahamas 2.jpg

This piece is located in Nassau, which is in the Bahamas. (off the east coast of the state of Florida, USA)

It's at a depth of five meters and was installed in October, 2014, on the western coastline of New Providence. The name is in reference to the Ancient Greek sculpture of Titan Atlas, which holds the heavens and depicts a young Bahamian girl sustaining the ceiling of the ocean.

This is actually the largest single sculpture ever to be deployed underwater. It reaches from the sea floor, up to the surface — five meters in height — and weighs over sixty tonnes!

I'm staying in a trailer that has the desert painted on it so that it fits into the landscape surrounding it. I will go out and take a photo to demonstrate.

And here they are...

The above post reminded me that we've just had Sculptures by the Sea, 2018. Here are some highlights:
