This incredible outdoor installation was made by Andy Van Der Tuin. So simply composed of materials you could buy at a hardware store and so interesting to look at. The spheres wrapped in plastic wrap look like oily bubbles floating over the stone wall. There are so many ways to re-imagine everyday materials. To me, this is creativity at its finest: taking the ordinary and transforming it through artistic vision.

And why did this piece strike my fancy? Among many other reasons, because of the simple fact that this artist had a concept and then executed it. I have had trouble with that: execution. I, like so many people who think creatively, have a lot of ideas but often abandon them at infancy so that they remain mere thoughts, gathering dust
Every day I am trying to take those little steps towards personal expression. Great artists, writers, scholars, craftsmen, and philanthropists do not become who they are in a flash of light. These people had ideas and then took the necessary steps, no matter how small at first, to implement them.
