designboom oct 26, 2012 mirrored room of infinite reflections by thilo frank ‘the phoenix is closer than it appears’ by thilo frankinstallation view, kunsten, museum of modern art, aalborg, denmark, 2011image © studio thilo frank german artist thilo frank has sent designboom images of his project ’the phoenix is closer than it appears’, a large mirror installation that appears to merge into the surrounding space. by revealing a perfectly euclidical core, the visitor becomes the spatial focal point by moving on a swing through the vivid conceived environment. despite its large dimensionality (4 x 4 x 8 m), it creates a disorientating moment where the surrounding room translates a physical reflection, translating the viewer’s body into an imaginary reflection.

URS FISCHER @ MOCA, LA Spread across MOCA Grand Avenue and The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, the first survey in the United States of the Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer weaves together some of his most memorable and iconic sculptural works while creating an unexpected landscape in both venues. Fischer's world is fluctuating and unpredictable, and the pleasure that we derive from his sculpture and painting is based on our attraction to and simultaneous repulsion by the dreamlike appearances that he constructs. Fischer's work is characterized by an unending diversity of materials, strategies, concepts, and images. Sculptures are created through an elaborate aluminum casting process, roughly hewn in wood, or cast in wax only to melt away during the run of the exhibition.
Jeff Wall’s Unique Photographic Vision ONE HUNDRED MILES into the desert north of Los Angeles, at the intersection of two crumbling roads that are slowly re-assimilating into the ruddy, sunbaked earth, a flimsy, black folding umbrella—the kind that sells for $7 at a drugstore—fends off the high-noon rays from its perch on a metal stand. Beneath its shade, a tall man in a blue dress shirt and black jeans climbs onto a ladder, oblivious to the 85-degree heat. He peers through binoculars, concentrating intently on two land surveyors working about 15 yards in front of him and, beyond, the scrubland extending to the horizon. The binoculars are balanced atop an accordion-like, oversize black camera. After a moment, the man triggers the shutter by squeezing a small piston with a precise flicking motion that calls to mind Roger Federer’s net game.
