This new work from Daniel Arsham elevates the beauty of an already astonishing view of Rio’s Sugar Loaf Mountain, via designboom.
presented by oi futuro — an institute dedicated to culture, education, and sustainability — arsham’s ‘blue garden’ re-interprets an ancient environment, important in japanese culture as a refuge for meditation and contemplation. here, the artist ornaments the sand landscape with contemporary ‘petrified’ artifacts from his practice, suggesting a contrast between the ancient and the modern. ‘where the stones should be, we find everyday objects,’ dantas continues, ‘petrified, functioning as a kind of geological expression, in dialogue with the monumentality of the geological expression of pão de açúcar — solemn, straight ahead, creating the strange equilibrium of this garden.’
