The Impossibility Of Nature
BY SHONA WILSON
@ VOL 2
ON JUN 26, 2014
The repetitive use of natural detritus brings Shona Wilson closer to understanding the world we share. The materials themselves are storehouses of knowledge and information. They act as 'keys', unlocking doors to memory, science, history and imagination. Her current work increasingly responds to and reflects upon the cross-pollinations between nature, humans and culture, referencing in particular, plastics' invasion into the 'natural' world.

Realizing Good Ideas
BY CHRISTOPHER SIANO
@ VOL 14
ON NOV 17, 2015
"It's not enough to have a good idea. To realize that good idea is very difficult, and that's what I work hard to do".
In Realizing Good Ideas from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 14, Chris Siano shares how he uses digital design and fabricatio to make things better, whether it is a public art installation, a student sculpture project, a building or a neighborhood. For the past twelve years he has served as an Instructional Support Technician in the University at Buffalo Department of Art. In 2005 he formed The Foundry Group Inc. - a company specializing in art and architectural fabrication. And in 2012, in partnership with his brother Matthew, he formed HES Properties - a real estate development company focusing on development of mixed-use properties on Buffalo's West Side. All of these endevours are conduits for great ideas in his community to come to fruition.

@ VOL 14
ON OCT 01, 2016
Juho Viitasalo shares Construction 2000, a unique geometric steel sculpture in Helsinki, Finland. Its most eye catching feature is a 600 kg pyramid that seems to float in air without any support. This 10 meter tall physics defying structure has stood since 1982 and is truly unique in the world. However it is still somewhat unknown. Construction 2000 was designed by Markku Viitasalo and now his son wants to take the design to the world out of the confines of the office block where it stands in Helsinki.

Noh: The Sculpture of Time
The traditional Japanese musical and dramatic art of Noh evokes the contemporary through its use of space, materials, and lines resulting in a "sculpture of time". In this edition of Presentation of the Day, listen to John Oglevee expound (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 103) upon these concepts, as part of the noh performances he performs himself for English-speaking audiences.
Geodesic Dome Sculptures
Sculptor Nick Sayers began very small. He was fascinated with the sphere, and began creating spheres from objects not ordinarily associated with this three-dimensional shape -- like measuring tape. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Geodesic Dome Sculptures" from PKN Brighton Vol. 18, Nick shows us some of his works, from very small spheres to geodesic domes large enough sit in. His work culminates into a new, grander project: a 120-sided geodesic dome large enough for people to stand in -- all constructed from real estate signs.
Storytelling through Sculpture
Can you find the story in each piece? What do you interpret? Judy Bonzi shares her artistic process of creating sculptures around themes of the human condition, nature, and relationships. In "Storytelling through Sculpture" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 18, she uses diverse techniques like bronze-working and stone-carving to create memorable pieces, with an emphasis on shadows, movement, and naturalism.
Soft Sculpture Art
Springy, bouncy, puffy, floppy, and squishy. Erica Gray discusses her artwork focused around soft sculptures or the use of fabric and other soft, pliable materials to create sculptures. In "Soft Sculpture Art" from PKN Townsville, Vol. 4 she discusses her past soft sculpture exhibits which have featured sea anemones, pipes, and animals.
Laser walls, UV inks, lit scaffolding structures, and light forms of all kinds; James Clar's work is nothing short of brilliant. Media artist working with forms of light James Clar discusses his work. In "Light Affectations" we see that, much like the way television manipulates and controls light to convey the entertainment medium, James uses three-dimensional light sculpture to convey emotion, data, moments in history, political relationships, and more.
Bike-Powered Kinetic Sculpture
Ever ridden a crocodile bike? We thought not -- these two sculptors build them: Raymond Rawls and Lorraine Duerden explore the potential for using abandoned, recycled bicycles as the foundation to create large-scale ambulatory kinetic sculpture. In "Bike-Powered Kinetic Sculpture" from PKN Gainesville, Vol. 10, they speak about the creation process of these animal-themed rideable sculptures, and the community parades where they put them on display.
Ecological Sculpture: Patterns in Nature
Is there a place within us that remembers that we are nature? Kimberly Callas is an artist who presents on her current project 'Portrait of the Ecological Self': an artistic investigation that uses sculpted forms of the human body in combination with natural materials to explore images and symbols from nature that strongly connect with the human psyche. In "Ecological Sculpture: Patterns in Nature" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 21 we learn that her work has recently received a Puffin Foundation Grant and has been exhibited in New York, Chicago, and as far a field as Bulgaria.
Little Maine Sculptures

Years after moving off the island, Monhegan has resurfaced like a great whale in Leith’s art making practice.
