Bones as 3D Typography
"Hurry Up" Floating Text

For obvious reasons, this piece of 3D typographic art reminds me of the Natural History Museum in London.

The Hurry Up is a piece created by Fail Harder which was on display at the W+K Lobby (224 NW 13th Ave in Portland). I am jealous of those who get to see it every day; I just love it.

They made the piece by sculpting pink insulation with hack saws and electric carving knives. Next they covered them with a thick layer of plaster which was then chiseled, filed, and sanded until smooth. The ‘bones’ where then coloured with coffee, white and ocher paints, tea, gel medium, sand and dirt.

The bones were suspended from 25 foot crossbeams using fishing wire and the whole result looks fabulous. Of course it was also aided by some brilliant photographs of the piece which really show it as its very best.
