For his site-specific installation, “Miner on the Moon,” artist Alex Chinneck turned a London building upside down. “I’m conscious that when a person walks through the doors of an art gallery they do so through choice, but people do not make that choice when presented with public sculpture,” Alex says. “I wanted to create an artwork therefore that offered spectacle but was simultaneously subtle and by using the material and architectural language of the district the artwork has the ability to disappear into its environment without dominating it.”
Hudson Woods is a dreamy green development taking form in the Hudson River Valley. Consisting of 26 beautifully curated parcels of land on 131 acres, the community’s design-driven homes are architected from locally-sourced materials with a forester deciding optimal placement in nature for each residence, making homeownership a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Available lots begin at $665k, so maybe we’ll be neighbors once I get my “creative escape” money up.
For his Closed Cities series, photographer Gregor Sailer captured cities that were, for various reasons, kept secret and off maps until very recently. His photos feature places in Siberia, Azerbaijan, Qatar, Chile, Algeria and Argentina.
