Quick Trip: Oldenburg Binoculars

Hi all!

I am officially back from my week long trip to Los Angeles! I saw some really cool things there, but one of the best was the Claes Oldenburg Binocular building in Venice, CA-




Some of you may be familiar with Oldenburg's Spoon Bridge and Cherry-



Here's some more of Oldenburg's work:








I have loved Oldenburg's work for years. His wife, Coosje Van Bruggen, helped Claes create his concepts and work, though (typically) most of his work is attributed to himself instead of the both of them. They created gigantic sculptures of everyday objects, often putting them in urban environments.

You can learn more about Oldenburg and Van Bruggen here. View more of their work here.
