8/7/2006: 50,000 balls in Aussie artwork

Put this in the "interesting art" category, and here's another thread title that sounds dirty but isn't. Here we have a work titled "Atomix -- Full of Love, Full of Wonder". Artist Nike Savvas (shown in the picture making final adjustments) is Australian, the installation is at the New South Wales Art Gallery.

It represents the "shimmering outback" -- the colors come from the colors of the outback, and the balls are blown with fans so that they move a little bit in the wind. Nice work! I would like to see it in person.

"Now they know how many balls it takes to fill the Albert Hall..."

lumberjim  Monday Aug 7 12:34 PM

you can see that she looooooooves the balls

Flint  Monday Aug 7 12:35 PM

Try to walk through there without getting tea-bagged!

post option #2:
"some balls are held for charity, and some for fancy dress, but when they're held for pleasure they're the balls that I like best"

I think Flint wins with AC/DC.

"ball-sucker! ball-sucker! ball-sucker! ball-sucker!"

Flint  Monday Aug 7 12:53 PM

When a cutle little art-chick touches 50,000 balls, everybody wins!

Oh, wow...spatially-oriented pixels! That is frickin' brilliant.

MsSparkie  Monday Aug 7 01:27 PM

Not being a baseball fan, it would have been even better if it was all pucks!

footfootfoot  Monday Aug 7 05:00 PM

Puckin' brilliant then.

That is exactly what it looks like when you chow ten grams of shrooms.

That is awesome.

I'm there.

Where are the pigeons when you need 'em?

capnhowdy  Monday Aug 7 05:45 PM

Great work! I don't think it would be near as interesting without the mirrors. Imagine it with black background, flourescent balls and black light. Now that would be 'shroomy.

Wombat  Monday Aug 7 07:17 PM

I really like it.

I don't say that often about art.

ditto - now I think I should go and get myself checked out.

That's a really good installation.

I wonder if they would let me in if I showed up with a tennis racquet?

glatt  Friday Aug 11 04:46 PM

Here's a similar display of lighted balls. Makes a 3-D display.

xoxoxoBruce  Friday Aug 11 11:38 PM

I like that glatt, but looking through the pictures, I definitely like it better outside.
I wonder what UT's would look like outside where you could see scenery, background, distance, through it?
