Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

‘The world is an interesting place: we stumble upon unexpected things each day’ says Cheri Lucas Rowland.

Of course we should expect the unexpected in an art gallery, but this is my offering for the challenge. Oki Naganode by Julia Lohmann was an installation at the V & A back in September, made from Naga Kombu, a type of Japanese Seaweed. It has been stretched by hand over a framework of cane. Lohmann uses a variety of natural materials including bone and cow and sheep stomach. Oki Naganode was created to show the design potential of seaweed, and is around eight feet high.

  1. remarkable! It’s always nice to come across something in the world of art that is truly new…so many people are very good at imitation, but it takes quite a lot of talent to be innovative. Great shots

    1. I’m glad you like it Nick. I’ve just looked at your site, it’s fab and the info about camera gear is excellent. I’d lke to upgrade my Canon 450d and now I know what do save for – the 70d!

  2. Never seen anything like this…….gorgeous! Beautiful! ….and to think it is made from seaweed, and to top it all……. It is EIGHT FEET HIGH……….WOW!! Thank you for sharing.
