I would see this piece on the scaffolding on my way to the subway every morning, curious to know who and why it was placed there. Now I know the work belongs to MOMO, artist from Brooklyn. Below are other works by MOMO that I dig.

3 above pieces are work in progress
Unlike the title of the exhibition, the experience was quite 'Red', simulating an experience of walking through a living organism or a burning forest. Walking into Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen's installation at DAC was my favorite part of DUMBO Art Under the Bridge fair this weekend. The multi layered, textured, labyrinth of old Tree trunks are made entirely of paper. The magnificent impact of the color, size and the incredible texture of the paper that simulates life can only be perceived in person. A must see! Exhibition is showing through November 29, 2009.
I saw this installation at Smack Mellon Gallery during my outing at Dumbo Art Under the Bridge Fair this weekend. This installation consists of a 28 foot landscape constructed with approximately 2700 plastic bottles collected by the artist on the streets of Brooklyn. Ellen Driscoll showing at Smack Mellon Gallery through November 4th, 2009. Info click here.
