i’m jealous of jim lambie

Tape. In elaborate, perfect patterns. On the floor… which is where I currently am. Yep, I’m in complete awe of these insane installations by Scottish artist Jim Lambie. I can’t even imagine the patience something like this would take. Whoa. Ok, so maybe I’ll just stay down on the ground until I catch my breath – see you on Monday! Happy weekend : )

    Love it! That’s pretty incredible. I wouldn’t have the patience, I don’t think ;)

    Love the way the lines in the last image seem to be melting from the center! Reminds me a bit of Markus Linnenbrink’s work. The installation with the chairs is fab!

    I can’t believe that is tape! I will check out his site on my own, but are there any videos of the installation of this? I would love to see it! I wonder how long it takes him?

    My ex worked with a group of people to install one of these works at ACCA in Melbourne a few years ago, I’m pretty sure he didn’t get paid to do it either. So I suppose the answer is that the artist doesn’t need much patience at all because he gets other people install it for him…

    yeah, i didn’t even think of that. i’ve seen some big wall murals that were installed by other people (vision/design by the artist, of course!)
