    Gigantesque! Mahtavaa kierrätystä. Ja isot työt sopivat hyvin noihin tiloihin.

      Ei tuon teoksen kokoa oikein tajunnut ennen kuin himassa huomasin sen pienen ihmisen kavelevan siella kaytavalla… 🙂
      Nautin suuresti taman kertaisesta ARSista!

      Niinpa, kaksi tuntia meni kuin siivilla. Olisin voinut jaada pidempaankin mutta piti menna toisaalle.
      Mielenkiintoinen, koskettava ja tasokas nayttely!

    Kohta se loppuu. Ja sitten tulee taas jotain uutta ja jännittävää.

    Hauskasti olet käynyt kamerasi kanssa nuuskimassa samoissa paikoissa. Minultakin löytyy arkistoista kuva noiden portaiden alta 🙂

      Muutaman kuukauden tauko jonka aikana on (en muista milloin) mahdollisuus tutustua Kiasmaan riisuttuna, ilman taideteoksia. Jos vaan voin aion kayda katsastamassa…
      Nuuskiminen on kivaa. Tykkaan Kiasman ilmapiirista ja siita etta siella saa vapaasti valokuvata.
      Kiasma on kuin pikkuguggenheim, Bilbaossa se isompi… 🙂

  5. I like the aluminum “wall hanging” made of castoff cans! Delightfully innovative!


    I have a little shadow that always follows me;
    My shadow is my best friend, as anyone can see.

    No matter where my feet go, my shadow’s always there—
    Except, of course, at midnight with darkness everywhere!

    I like that ‘curtain’ of metal bottle caps, art can offer a practical side, too! I like the curvy ramp bringing us up levels – perfect for wheelchairs, too. The artistic shadows seem fitting in such a cool gallery!

    What a fabulous art collection. Love the tin pieces. I have a number of pins made of tin by a lady living in Germany.These pieces are wonderful and full of color. The light and shadow shots are amazing. Both were perfect for great captures. And that final shot of the lady beneath the art piece really gets the point across of how large the work is. This is a great post for the art lover. genie
