Helena Seget – Thoughts

What's on Helena's mind today?

Month: July, 2012

Enter another world via the Tyne Tunnel

If you get a chance I would recommend an immediate visit to Sunderlands’s NGCA gallery.


Kelly Richardson‘s mesmerising installations there make for a wonderful,  alternative day trip.

Square Head

I often found myself thinking about the differences that might exist between design and art, and also between art and design and functionality. If there are any.  (I think a lot too about sustainability, but that’s a slightly different matter).

Imagine my surprise – and admiration – when I saw an article about this piece: The Square Head (La Tete Au Carre).  The Square Head is… a monumental sculpture, a working library building, and a beautiful item – all at the same time!

The piece was designed by Sacha Sosno and is sited in Nice, France.  Quite an achievement. Image
