Created by Johnathon Kneebone and James Dives of advertising agency The Glue Society, this melting ice cream truck is a sculpture titled Hot With The Chance of Late Storm was unveiled at the 2006 Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney. Taking place yearly, this event showcases artists’ work along Sydney’s Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk.
Originally from Bangkok, Thailand, artist Rook Floro currently lives in Birmingham, England. His art investigates ideas of human metamorphosis and particularly the tension between desiring change and appreciating oneself.
This piece, ‘Shadow’, is inspired by Carl Jung’s psychological theory about the shadow. It concerns with the repressed ideas, weakness, and desires of oneself that the conscious mind refuses to acknowledge.
According to Rook, it represents his ‘shadow’ and involves his hidden desires to be different and become perfect in his own right.
Rook’s work reminds me of the steel wire sculptures of Tomohiro Inaba.
Created by Tomohiro Inaba, these steel wire sculptures appear to be the disintegration of a metal sculpture before your eyes. A delicate fawn nibbling in the grass or a pair of legs captured in mid-stride, each dissolves into a complex tangle of steel wire that angrily twists into the sky.
