Jeppe Hein: Please Touch the Art (Public Art Fund Lecture)

Adventures, Art World News

I went to an awesome talk last night where public artist and interactive sculptor, Jeppe Hein shared his charming thoughts and work. Hein was absolutely inspiring and really fun to listen to. The lecture included interactive elements with balloons, raisons, impromptu musical performances, and ricocheting ping pong balls to keep everyone on their toes and “in the here and now.” Most of Hein’s recent work deals with this concept of living in the present and embracing spontaneity. It’s an important reminder. Plus, it was cool to see an artist whose work so accurately reflects his personality and self. Loved it!
