Is it nice..?

Damian Ortega

Posted in Arty, Is it Nice..? by Ade Chong on September 19, 2011

I’m sure that you all know that I just love arranging and organising things, so imagine my delight when I stumbled upon Damian Ortega‘s amazing installations. Born in Mexico and living in Germany, Damian is an artist who specialises in creating sculptures, installations, videos and actions with a wide range of mundane objects. This piece, Cosmic Thing (2002), is one of his most celebrated works. He disassembled a Volkswagen Beetle car and re-composed it piece by piece. Suspended from wire in mid-air, the sculpture resembles a real-life 3-dimensional mechanic’s instruction manual.

Just jizz-worthy. More of his work below!
