This week my favorite artist/designer is Cornelia Konrads. She was born in 1957 in Wuppertal/Germany and famous for creating mind-bending site-specific installations in public spaces, sculpture parks and private gardens around the world.
Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes. One of her more recent sculptures, Schleudersitz is an enormous slingshot made from a common park bench, and you can get a great idea of what it might be like to sit inside it with this interactive 360 degree view.
So sit back and enjoy some of her amazing master pieces.
