Houston reservoir reborn as public space, canvas for art – Houston Chronicle

In this Friday, Dec. 16, 2016, photo, the exhibition of an abstract-video installation called “Rain” by Venezuelan artist Magdalena Fernández is projected inside a former water reservoir dubbed the “Cistern”.

It’s the latest example of efforts by U.S. cities — including Atlanta; Buffalo, New York; Philadelphia; San Francisco; and Washington, D.C. — to repurpose abandoned and dilapidated pieces of infrastructure as public spaces. Urban planners see the preservation of historic buildings and other structures as essential in creating the kinds of communities people want to live in, said Stephanie Meeks, president and CEO of the Washington, D.C.-based National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Wood Wall Art, reclaimed wood art, industrial decor, "Fire sparks"

Wood Wall Art, Modern wall sculpture, 3D triangles, hand painted, woodburned, cut, dyed and sanded. Each piece is painted in unique acrylic or wood dye colours mixed by me, and not available in any shop, making the sculpture unique and one of a kind. Each wood piece is cut into triangles, woodburned and hand sanded, dyed or painted to receive this modern abstract look piece. Wood pieces are painted in a special way that after assembling I create unique shape and the light is giving different shine by creating shade on each of mine pieces differently.
