Big Drip by Daniel Arsham

Via Scoop.itA Drunk Designer

Daniel Arsham’s oeuvre includes two-dimensional work, installation, public art, and performance, but the monochromatic simplicity of his sculptures is what captivates us the most. Using materials such as fiberglass, joint compound, plaster, fabric and other accessories, Arsham manipulates architecture and its details, playing with the viewer’s notions of reality. But on a more basic level, it is the tactility of the work that manipulates the viewer: the smoothness, the bulges, the folds and wrinkles, the suggestion of form … Despite our unwillingness to be pulled in, we feel a need to engage, a desire to interact.
