performance art

I am increasingly interested in performance art and art that simply blends multiple categories. Nowadays I think it's safe to say that;
  • Art is no longer created specifically to be hung on a wall (naturally we have seen different spaces utilized to showcase Art for a while).
  • The distinction of disciplines is continuing to diminish even further.
  • What Art will continue to be is Expression, whatever way you look at it.

From the Moochers: "Daniel Arsham is new type of artist, his work brings together multiple
mediums which include performance, dance, architecture and art. His forms are pure, linear, elegant and, curiously, three-dimensional. Arsham uses illusions to make his masterpieces feel magically alive. Born in 1980 in Cleveland Ohio, USA. Daniel lives and works in New York and Miami."

Other works Daniel has made or worked on in collaboration:

That Daniel is one clever talented cookie also shows in his commercial work. He set up Snarkitecture with Alex Mustonen: 
Snarkitecture is a collaborative practice operating in territories between the disciplines of art and architecture. Working within existing spaces or in collaboration with other artists and designers, the practice focuses on the investigation of structure, material and program and how these elements can be manipulated to serve new and imaginative purposes. Searching for sites within architecture with the possibility for confusion or misuse, Snarkitecture aims to make architecture perform the unexpected.

Snarkitecture was established by Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham and is represented by Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin.
