This guy made a cast sculpture of the exact pathway of a lightning bolt!

This is 3 years old and I just discovered it.

It's AMAZING. Before this, Allan McCollum exhibited at the prestigious Venice Biennale.

Anyone living in Florida saw this work of art?

I wonder if the thing the guy did in Sweet Home Alabama is similar, with the lightening melting the sand into cool glass sculptures.......anyone know what I'm talking about?

I didn't watch Sweet Home Alabama. This lightning shit is so damn cool. Allan McCollum's work in general is about the artistic process and how the art world works. He casts generic-looking sculptures and picture frames, but each object he makes is slightly unique. It takes him years to do a series.

This is called "Over Ten Thousand Individual Works" and fills an entire gallery floor. Each object is cast by combining three small random objects from around the city. Every object you see here is unique.

Here, he casts dinosaur bones, I don't know why.
http://home.att.net/~amcnet2/album/lostobjects2.html

These are cast from the original 'chained dog from Pompeii', the dog fossil(?) found in the famous remains. With these sculptures, he is therefore making copies of a copy (for the fossil is a mere copy of the original dog that once breathed life).

very cool....I wouldn't suggest that anyone try the lightening stuff at home


I helped an archeologist guy cast some dinosaur bones once...it was fun
