I first wrote about the delightful website http://www.psfk.com a couple of years ago when I highlighted the entries of Claudia Cukrov who wrote at the time about the playful access to Netherland’s Overvecht train station, which offers both conventional stairs and an adult-sized slide. (http://www.psfk.com/2011/07/dont-take-the-stairs-take-the-slide.html)That would definitely lighten my mood as I started the trek toward home.
More recently I have been fascinated by the vision of Dutch artist Diet Wegman, who has created an innovative collection of sculptures that use light and angle to transform what look like selections from a landfill into replicas of Michael Jackson performing “Thriller,” Michaelangelo’s David, and Venus de Milo, among dozens of others. He actually calls them Rubbish 1, Rubbish 2, and so on, but when they are illuminated, the figure on the wall is stunning. Check them out at http://www.psfk.com/2013/03/michael-jackson-garbage-sculpture.html. Then see more at http://dietwiegman.tumblr.com/light%20sculptures.
