Modern sculpture in Monochrome Maniacs

Found on the wall of a hospital.



This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at The Monochrome Maniacs

Tøfft bilde,men hva i all verden er det for noe de har stablet der?Klarer ikke å se det jeg,men det er vel kanskje meningen.

Modern and modern.
Not everything can be called art, and I think your photo rather should be part of the odd shot meme.
Hope the patients at the hospital not feel comfortable with equipment like this

Sykepleieren styggler for DETTE kaller man resirkulering gitt!!

Gamlegåstoler resirkuleres til veggpynt, men pent??? ikke helt min stil i alle fall. Noe helt ANNET hadde det vært om, de hadde vært rusta kanskje...

You mean it was put there deliberately? Hm. Well, I'm not an artist so maybe that's why i don't appreciate it.

I have heard of folders, but this is ridiculous...

Great use for hospital detritus.

Det var en underlig sak att hänga på väggen på ett sjukhus...men bilden fick mig att le och fundera varifrån delarna kommer....och det är då det blir "creepy". =)

Tack för ditt besök!

Someone had fun putting this together. ;-) I'd love to know the story behind it. ;-)

I think that it's cool! We always have such boring art in hospitals here! It shows the Norwegians are hip, free thinking, and open to different things somehow!

Dragonstar said...

What a strange sculpture! I agree with ArneA, you could have used it as an Odd Shot. It's a fun way to use unwanted bits and pieces - but I'd hate to have to dust it!

Organdonasjon og organdonasjon... Her er noen som har misforstått :-)

We have a local artist here, called Cesar, who liked to do such..things.
I'm not totally closed to modern art, but I don't like this work, especially because it's in an hospital, and This thing gives me the feeling of broken things, destruction,chaos. What I want to see in an hospital is hope, care and softness.

Wonderful .. I hope this represents all those who tossed aside these 'helpers' and get on without them

Nå fikk jeg meg en herlig latter! Og det ligger mye gjenkjennelse i den latteren! Har arbeidet på sykehus, og må si lageret der senger, sengehester, rullatorer og diverse sto, så slik ut til tider. Ganske lenge av tiden.... :)

Er litt enig med flere her: dette var da virkelig et "odd shot!"

ANNA-LYS said...

Det här är konst i trippel bemärkelse!
För det första är allt onaturligt och konstgjort dvs artificiellt, det existerar inte som naturlig sammansättning i naturen, utan vi blandar till och får de metaller vi önskar.

För det andra så är vi oartiga och slänger skapelserna, utan återvändo!

men, då kommer räddarna i nöden, våra kära artistet och sätter nageln i ögat på oss genom att skapa konst, av konstigheterna ;-)

Artfully,
Anna-Lys

It's certainly unusual!

I actually like odd sculptures like this from recycled materials. Interesting one for monochrome.

I wonder if someone took apart a hospital bed and they had some parts left over . . . it's good for us to stretch and see things like this.

I read all the comments before the picture loaded, then anticipated what I would see. I like it. It gives me a feeling that these items are discarded because they are no longer needed for the patient. It's more of a symbol of hope for those recovering. But yes, it would be a pain to dust ;-) Great shot for mono.
