Currently showing in the windows at Selfridges in London is a set of sculptures by Kyle Bean, based on the scientific law of conservation of energy…

 

Bean has drawn on the scientific theory – which states that ‘matter cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed’ – to create five works for Selfridges. Each consists of a set of giant hanging scales on which two items are placed. One is an object in its original form, the other a transformed version of it. The scales then prove that the objects are still of equal weight, and thus still essentially the same.

 

In one display, Bean has transformed a cardboard packing box into an office chair, while another shows 1000 aluminum cans mutated into a small cube. For a third window, Bean has drawn on his paper crafting skills to create a stunning sculpture of a castle from the pages of three fairytale books.

 

The other two works see a wedding cake and a Honda Fireblade motorcycle turned into mobiles (in something of a homage to Cornelia Parker, perhaps). A video of the works being installed is shown below.

 

The installations will be on display at Selfridges until September 1. More info on Kyle Bean is on the BlinkArt website, here.
