Patterns of Public Sculture

Tasha Lewis, a young artist from Indiana, is exploring a medium she has named “Guerrilla Sculpture” by using magnetic butterflies that she created using recycled materials. She decorates public spaces with a swarm of these small sculptures to create temporary “magical and unexpected pieces of public art”. The project is reminiscent of the ‘Trophy‘, a temporary exhibition at the V&A in London, where artist Clare Twomey scattered delicate ceramic birds made from Wedgewood’s Jasper blue clay all through the museum and invited visitors to take a bird home with them.
