Hundred of bird cages strung up across the alley way in Sydney. They are big, small, round, square, short, tall bird cages and everything in between. Just off Angel Place and one street back from George Street you round a corner to find the laneway where a canopy of empty bird cages hang above the street making graphic shapes and shadows against blue Sydney skies. This permanent public art installation plays a soundscape of birdsong. The calls, tweets and twittering are from bird species that used to live in this area, before the city replaced their native habitats. The installation is known as ‘Forgotten Songs’ and is part of the Laneways: By George Hidden Networks project.

“Cloud Cities” By Tomas Saraceno

Tomas Saraceno Cloud lead 537x357 Cloud Cities By Tomas Saraceno

This month, the main hall at the Hamburger Bahnof (Museum of Contemporary Art) in Berlin will be adorned with a series of giant clear orbs that visitors can actually climb in, on and around! Created by Argentine artist Tomas Saraceno, the orbs float in an ethereal network of mesh, which spans the entire hall. Called “Cloud Cities,” the installation features spheres filled with different organic materials from water to plant life. Initially trained as an architect, Saraceno set up his orbs so that they are “caught” in black rope netting at perfect degrees, enabling the blown up plastic spheres to support weight.

Geometric Forms In Natural Environment

‘Moneyless’ installed works throughout the city and countryside of Grottaglie in Italy. Moneyless’s work experiments with geometric forms in both two and three -dimensional media. Beginning with paintings, based on the forms of threads he nailed into the wall, moneyless gradually began to create real solid figures, floating in space with the support of transparent wires. Interested in the visual conflict created by the presence of a manmade, logical figure in the natural environment, the artist created paint and physical installations throughout Grottaglie for this year’s Fame Festival.
