Tofer Chin’s 14 Black

We came upon this a few days ago but neglected to post it. This morning it popped up on Juxtapoz, and remembered how awesome it is. Tofer Chin, creating these 14 stalagmite structures around Lagoa dos Patos at Parque Lage, in Rio De Janeiro. From the artist:

…14 Series1 Black Stalagmite sculptures will live and breathe through out the lush environment surrounding the Lagoa dos Patos at Parque Lage. Experience a sense of discovery amidst conversations between reflection and absorption of light. The Stalagmites are living and breathing souls, ghosts, spirits, voids, shadows…

The juxtaposition and setting is key here, but seeing these works in an extremely natural space really evokes an interesting reaction. The photography almost looks like the works in itself rather than it being an installation. Tofer put together a quick video of the effort:
