Ocean Parts by Koby Sibony

 

Ocean Parts by Israeli designer Koby Sibony, is a series of sculptures created from a combination of plastic pieces collected from the beach and metal wire. I love the playfulness and crafty aspects of these creations – particularly the remote control cars and radio. These bring me back to my youth, when I would collect sticks and stones and other debris and make them into creative playthings (kids, this is what we did before the Internet). And thanks to Koby for helping clean up the shorelines!

All ephemeral, lasting a few weeks or maybe just a few hours, temporary street art installations are a colorful and engaging addition to ever-evolving urban settings. Some are so subtle that only the most observant of urban residents even notice them, like little sculptures of men in puddles; others are impossible to ignore, like 30-foot cardboard statues looming over the street. Some of these sculptural installations are officially commissioned while many more are stealthily assembled, guerrilla-style. Shocking, fun and often interactive, these 14 works bring art to the masses rather than cooping it up in museums.

The night was already charged. The excitement of having Angels Playpen newbie model Chloe Q. and my Argentine ride or die chic Lexi with me had me giddy with anticipation. The night would prove interesting if nothing else. When I pulled up in my intermediate rental (I rarely drive), I received a call from another model that I had recently become a fan of; Fia Khalid. Yes her name is Khalid; ironic. Her company was welcomed and I really appreciated her laid back demeanor. She was cool. She brought with her a friend who I later learned was named Camille. Our hosts for the evening, Park East Restaurant and Lounge along with Twylife’s Yao Huang saw fit to provide a reserved seating area and table upon which sat a bottle of non-descript vodka. It was all appreciated. Security kept tight watch over the girls, this too was greatly appreciated. Some say I am a little over-protective of the girls, but I say that’s silly. They are the night’s main attraction and a valued commodity to HTM. We love our angels.
