It’s been a few years since we last checked in on the work of New York-based artist Joshua Allen Harris, who uses only tape and discarded plastic shopping bags to create giant inflatable animals that he fastens to sidewalk grates and vents to give them a sense of movement and life. A polar bear (see below), that some have linked to concerns about global warming, is the most famous Joshua Allen Harris creation so far. But he’s made many other animals, creatures and monsters, including this more recent one above.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
