Let's Read Art: Ernesto Neto

Let's Read Art: Ernesto Neto

This week we looked at public art by Ernesto Neto. Below are the interpretations of Andy and Spencer (my sons) and myself.

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

  • looks like pennies with slots cut out of them
  • made of steel
  • no it's made of copper, did you know the statue of liberty is made of copper
  • it's way bigger than people
  • interesting shadows
  • public art on display near a walking path

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THESE FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE?

  • it's like a flower caterpillar
  • looks like a toy we have except ours is square shapes
  • I would want to move it but clearly it's too heavy to move
  • looks like a sculpture of a snake
  • it'd be fun to climb
  • ...but a bit dangerous
  • wish it was made out of something lighter so we could move it and play with it

WHY DID THE ARTIST PUT THIS ALL TOGETHER?

  • looks like a toy for a giant
  • I love that! yes, that perfectly explains what I see
  • yes, a giant baby trying to make a sculpture of a man

These are our interpretations, you may see something different. Oh, and I should mention that when we do this we don't read up about the piece until after we've looked at it.
