Art That Plays With Scale


Artworks that complicate one’s expected understanding of the relative size of objects. While there are various examples of this approach in contemporary art, iconic examples include Jeff Koons's Balloon Dogs and the monochrome portrait photographs JR plasters around the world. Often this approach seeks to monumentalize the typically unmonumental or mundane; one of the major roots of this approach is Claes Oldenburg's enormous public sculptures of food and implements that he began creating in the 1960s.
