Art Pick | Omission

We typically think of art in terms of creation, but in the case of these art installations, the message is transmitted through removal.

“The project is called Omission because it’s about taking an open space and removing the space with something that consumes the openness,” artist Juan Carlos Deleon explains. “I like to manipulate the existing environment and see how people respond, reevaluate what it was before, and gain a new appreciation.”

For Omission, Deleon, a practicing architect is filling five public spaces with large inflatable orbs. Each installation will be arranged in a different configuration at a different location on a different date, (this month: Longhorn Shores Park and Manchaca Library, on October 10th and 24th respectively) and will be on display very briefly—typically only one day.

“I like the spontaneity,” Deleon explains, “the idea of doing something temporary and out of the blue that’s so unexpected.”

Omission is one of the 10 projects featured in TEMPO, an annual project organized by the city’s Art in Public Places (AIPP) program to cultivate tourism and raise awareness about temporary and public art in Austin.

During its first installation in August, Austinites flocked to the interactive Omission, bouncing off balls and running through the Instagram-worthy exhibit. “There was this kid in the installation trying to tackle [one],” Deleon laughs. “He loved it and the balloon didn’t pop, so that was great.” Find more information on Omission and the other TEMPO works here.
