In the evening I did an extra research and was inspired by a Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto. I found the structure of his works very similar to my idea, and decided to learn and explore his art more deeply and seriously.

Ernesto Neto

Neto's work has been described as "beyond abstract minimalism". His installations are large, soft, biomorphic sculptures that fill an exhibition space that viewers can touch, poke, and walk on or through. They are made of white, stretchy material -- amorphous forms stuffed with Styrofoam pellets or, on occasion, aromatic spices. In some installations, he has also used this material to create translucent scrims that transform the space's walls and floor. His sculptures can be regarded as expression of traditional abstract form, but in their interaction with the viewer, they work on another level as well. (

Ernesto Neto has a peculiar approach to space and the body. Rio de Janeiro, his native city, epitomizes the conflict between nature and culture and this has shaped his art. His sculptures often deal with the tensions exerted by gravity on skin-thin materials and his installations often take up the entire exhibition space. He uses gossamer-thin, light, stretchable fabrics in nylon or cotton that resemble fine membranes and fixes them to the ceiling by long, stretched threads so that his works hang down into the room, creating shapes that are almost organic. Sometimes they are filled with scented spices and hang in tear-shaped forms like gigantic mushrooms or huge soft, blobby, stretchy membrane-like things. He also creates peculiar soft sculptures which the visitor is allowed to feel through small openings in the surface or even wear. His spatial labyrinths further encourage the visitor to experience his work and interact with it. The experience must be very pleasant and unique.

...people love going to see his exhibits because these somehow manage to fill observers with the warm fuzzies and creep them out at the same time. (

Leviathan Thot, 2006

His monumental 2006 installation Leviathan Thot at the Pantheon in Paris was supposed to "contrast the animality of a tulle-and-polystyrene creature suspended under the dome of the Pantheon, with the weight of History and the cultural layers of this landmark".  It looks absolutely mind blowing.

Both of these videos are about ‘Tape Paris’. I loved how an installation interacts with the surroundings. I enjoyed the structure: it looks very breakable while we can see that it is rather stable and even people can travel through it and play with it. As for me, this amazing installation looks like a big cell system which is suspended in the air.

I found these installations on the They helped me to decide which material I want to try in the model making tomorrow – fabric. It is very flexible and reminds me the stretching structure of the bubble gum. Also, I have noticed some interesting forms  which I will attempt to repeat in my model making.
