Bio-Diversity art (Jeni Rinner)
Thought you guys would appreciate this art piece from the New York Times’ “Abstract City” column called “Bio-Diversity“. An interesting piece of appreciating the diversity of the humble fallen leaves cluttering our sidewalks these days. Also calls attention to interesting patterns of anthropomorphism, I think. The artist, Christoph Neimann, makes art pieces to reflect his experience of life in New York City. If you look to the right of the leaves, you’ll see his other columns, all of which take on a reflective, almost journalistic tone. They also use a variety of interesting mixed media. He has used woven paper to reflect on the Berlin Wall, pins and burlap on his sense of self-efficacy, coffee on napkins to discuss a coffee addiction, and even his own bathroom tile home improvement project. What do you think his choice of media says about his subjects?
