Recent years have witnessed a proliferation of extremely original installation art in our urban centers. Partially driven by advances in design media and partially by the development of new construction technologies, this has led to an age of unbridled creativity. Constructed with a variety of materials, from the natural (wood, plants, and plant-based materials) to the man-made (glass, metal, and plastic) to the recycled (car parts, cds, and lightbulbs) the combination of effects are endless. Playing with light, color, sound, and texture, these projects redefine our urban landscapes and the way we experience public space. From the static to the dynamic and the visual to the interactive, the breadth of results is staggering. Sections include: Signature Landscape Installations, Individualized Ornaments, and Public Facilities.
