When All Else Fails, Sharpie! The Art of Heike Weber

When All Else Fails, Sharpie! The Art of Heike Weber

We all have had the "what to do with my floor" conundrum. Do I add a rug? Install hardwood floors? How about polished concrete? I could go on and on, but I think it's safe to bet that the last solution that came to anyone's mind was permanent marker.

Heike Weber is a German installation artist who creates large scale pieces using heavy repetition. While she does painting and drawings on paper, her installations using permanent marker across floors and walls (in areas sometimes larger than 5,000 square feet) are quite amazing and beautiful. While I don't know many people that would allow their floors to be adorned with doodles in permanent marker, I think I could be compelled if Heike was doing the work.
