One of our favorite street artists, Swoon, has an amazing new installation on view now at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Titled “Thalassa,” the sculpture spans the museum’s great hall and is inspired by the artist’s reaction to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Made from mostly found objects the work will be on display through September 25, 2011. Arrested Motion has some fantastic photographs (which we’ve pulled from), including all the preparation work for the sculpture.
