I'm sharing this video with the ISOCS classes who are investigating shape and space.  Do you think color or texture makes any difference to how you perceive a shape? Is a rough or furry cube different from a smooth paper one?  Is a florescent pink sphere different from a white one?  Do you feel connected to a shape you've drawn or built?  Watch this video all the way to the end.

"The street is a space where art thrives, and a place where artists can shape the public aesthetic. Olek, a sculptor whose medium is crochet, and Swoon, a mixed media artist, disrupt daily life with work that creates wonder, emotion, and humor. Equally at home in museums and galleries, both artists also create installations that challenge the formats of traditional art spaces. With powerful layers of meaning, beautiful aesthetics, and using unique media, these two prolific creators are pushing the boundaries of contemporary art."
