Sixth generation circus performer Tino Wallenda of The Flying Wallendas on the art of funambulism, or tightrope walking, over the historic Forest Park Grand Basin during the annual celebration of Independence Day in St Louis. When I asked Tino what sort of shoes he uses on his daredevil walks, he handed me his worn leather slipper which he protects from standing on bare ground. Instead of special equipment, he mostly relies on two things, focus and perseverance. #forestparkforever #FairStLouis #flyingwallendas #kingtungsten #IndependenceDay #FourthofJuly

It amazes me how people will sit on a rail like a pidgeon, stand in the corner, or puff against the wall just to fill their lungs with smoke. They may not solve great conflicts but figuring out when and where to tap their hookah or drag their Virginia Slims dry is an effortless task. #NoSmoking #health #lungfitness #smokebreak #yesiKnowsomeonewhosmokesvirginiaslims #lol

Tara Donovan Mimics Nature with the Mundane

To see more of Donovan’s work, explore the Pace Gallery location page and browse the #TaraDonovan hashtag.

The American artist Tara Donovan’s latest exhibition—on display through August 15 at Pace Gallery (@pacegallery) in New York City—consists of eight massive stalagmites constructed entirely from millions of glued-together index cards.

Donovan, whose critically-acclaimed work earned her the prestigious MacArthur Fellowship in 2008, challenges perceived distinctions between natural and artificial. By building large, organically shaped structures with everyday manmade materials like drinking straws, toothpicks and styrofoam cups, she forces viewers to reconsider the difference between the majestic and the mundane.
