Blue Foam by Gregory Witt

While researching blue foam, I stumbled across this great project by Gregory Witt. Greg is (er… was) an MFA candidate at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and Blue Foam is a network of cranks and motors that he completed in 2007. There’s a mesmerizing¬†video on his site that really shows off the writhing mass. If you’re a fan, then maybe you’d like his pink foam Cloud completed and installed in Portland just last year. Gregory has also installed original work at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, but that piece didn’t use foam.¬†But hey! Congratulations are in order for Mr. Witt: he was recently named the 2010 Emerging Artist of the Year by the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
