Inspired: Stacked

May 7, 2012 § 10 Comments

Using everyday objects and stacking them in confined spaces, Swedish artist Michael Johansson tries to make installation art more approachable and less alienating to the world around him. Where colour, shape and size are his main concern when stacking his piece together, he tries to keep the objects within context. Above, ‘The Flat’ includes a washing machine, closet doors, a microwave, radiators and, my favourite, ice cube trays. I’ve seen some closets that look like this! ;)

And here, another example of his work titled ‘Self Contained’. In this piece, his objects are very much contextual and yet I do feel he’s paid close attention to colour still – deep, intense and saturated colour. There’s real vibrancy to this installation.

I couldn’t contain myself…. lol… and had to share it with you. For more, directly from the artist himself, click here.
