Spinning Aeron Chair

We love this artwork. The piece is a Herman Miller Aeron-like office chair quickly being spun 360 degrees at various speeds in large glass case.

It’s one of dozens of works being shown at MoCA in Los Angeles as part of its “The Artist’s Museum” exhibition. The show is a survey of influential L.A.-based contemporary artists.

There’s a short video clip on the Web of the same artwork live and in action as it appeared at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh a couple of years ago. For another view, here’s another video clip.

Now if only we could remember the name of the artist.

Famed British painter David Hockney embraced first the Apple iPhone and then the iPad as medium for creating a collection of colorful impressionistic drawings which recently debuted in Paris at Fondation Pierre Berge – Yves Saint-Laurent. See still images below and check out the mini-documentary video on Artivi. Great stuff. More information in this article in the U.K. newspaper the Telegraph
