SO while I was putting together my
post I had come across, and featured,
This artwork inspired me to find more umbrella based installations.
Who knew umbrellas could be so interesting?
“Cumulus Light Canopy” by Steven Haulenbeek uses white photographers’ translucent “shoot-through” umbrellas to create variously sized configurations of umbrella lighting.
The “Parasol Project” by Jo Ann Fleischhauer is a spectacular installation with a deeper meaning: the artist chose to contrast how emotions are portrayed in modern times versus the Victorian Era. The images on the parasols, which mimic floral designs, are actually colour-infused Magnetic Resonance Images (MRIs) - contemporary emotional representations - while the parasols themselves represent the desires of women in Victorian times, who used parasols to convey unspoken emotions to men.
The Umbrella installation in Melbourne mall has little details to be found on the web.
The clustering of the black umbrellas are quite ominous when viewed from above or below.
"The Umbrellas" by Christo and Jean-Claude, which finally came to fruition in 1991, was an international affair, with 1,760 yellow umbrellas set up in Gorman, California and 1,340 blue umbrellas erected in Ibaraki, Japan. The total project cost was $26 million, and it attracted 3 million people from around the world.
"Umbrella Installation" by Ingo Maure at the entrance by Ingo Maurer (design week in Milan 2007).
"Bloom" by Sam Spenser mimics a tree blooming with giant yellow blossoms.

This Umbrella installation in Greece, with its tall translucent umbrella trees, is very striking.
