Two new sculptures by American artist Will Ryman
are now on exhibition in 'Anyone and No One' at the Paul Kasmin Gallery
, New York.
They are both massive installations created from everyday objects. 'Bird' is constructed from nails of various lengths and towers 12 feet tall whilst 'Everyman' uses a diverse variety of household items, such as paint brushes, bottle caps and work boots, to create a 90-foot figure within the gallery space.
Due to the sheer size and impact of both sculptures, Ryman's installation has been separated in two parts - 'Everyman' has taken up residence in the 293 Tenth Avenue location while the 27th Street space hosts the Bird, inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's
poem, 'The Raven'.
Beautiful structures that really catch the eye.

It has been some years now since tweeting became as much part of our daily routine as cleaning one's teeth or eating one's dinner; it is therefore hardly surprising that this social media power house currently has175 million tweeters who produce 95 million tweets every single day.
Yet despite these impressive statistics, the company is not really making any money as it attempts to keep up with the demand for micro-blogging site. So what is the attraction of larger companies such as Google, Facebook and Apple seeking to acquire Twitter? Potential advertising target of course.

Fortunately the $3.7m it is valued at is till significant enough to prevent larger companies from buying it outright. The little birdy therefore will, for now, live to tweet another day his own way.
