i’m still jealous of rune guneriussen

Sigh. The photographic installations of Rune Guneriussen. I wrote about him just a little over two years ago {my how time flies when you’re jealous!}, and he’s been very busy since then. Lamps, and books, and tables all finding new, temporary homes in the wilderness… just long enough for Rune to photograph them – and then just as magically as they appeared, they’re gone again. I wish he’d leave them there for a little while! I’d love to be out for a hike and come upon, well, any of these amazing groupings! Oh, and did I mention scale:

Yep… BIG and beautiful! This work is currently being shown at Rhein Galerie Bonn {exhibition shown above},¬†until November 10th 2012.

    I would love to go on a hike and come across a field of lamps turned on. That would be amazing!

    These are just so beautiful! Just imagine walking through the woods and coming across a party of colourful lamps – like something from another world. Thank you for sharing this stunning work.

    OK, these? Frickin’ amazing. Like Andy Goldsworthy but more whimsical and fun. Love.

    WOW. I’d actually not seen Guneriussen’s art before and I’m amazed! I’m a big fan of Andy Goldsworthy, so I really love this unique melding of the natural and human. Thanks for sharing!

    Lovely page, yours, envious girl. And I fully agree, only envy is the answer to those simple creativity works.
