Colosses | Fabrice Fouillet | Via

Statues are often idealized works of art. They are ideological, political or religious representations and attempt to turn their subjects into fascinating, eternal figures. Even when erected to keep alive the memory of a single person, a statue that lasts many generations will eventually establish itself as a symbol for the community. 

Statues are even more influential when they are monumental. An edifice can be said to be monumental when it is unusual, extraordinary and physically imposing. It has to be abnormal — as exceptional as the political or religious power itself — and also inseparable from its symbolic aspects.

The series “Colosses” is a study of the landscapes that embrace monumental commemorative statues.

Sacral Contemplation

Ian DavisSocks Studio

New-York based artist Ian Davis paints scenes where human beings are reduced to minimal multiplied figures gathering around a monumental presence. The main focus of a sacral contemplation by the anonymous crowd is sometimes a technological artifact, sometimes an infrastructure or a building . It’s the dramatic depiction of a world where man-made artifacts overcome the society of people who produced them, painted in an ironic, almost cartoon-like style.

Hitchhiker Thorunn Arnadottir

"Could some sort of hand signal system be used to utilise the available seats in our domestic cars as an alternative ‘public transport’? Hand signals could be based on a landmark or social characterisation specific to native locations. This way we can communicate directly and efficiently, our desired direction and end location directly to the passing potential ride."
