Size intrigues when it appears atypical. The greater the distinction, the stronger the magnetism, forcing us to hold our eyes on to that something to assimilate the particulars, make sense of it and have it lodged in our minds.
Profiling 40 artists known for their monumental sculptures and installations put up around the world, OVERS!ZE investigates how size functions as a delightful tool to make a statement, break the routine or shrink us — taking us back to a time where everything else was much larger than us. In the INTERVIEW section, we speak to some of the world’s most active big thinkers, to find out how they perceive space, public space and the merits of scaling up art.

ADA - an analog interactive kinetic sculpture by Karina Smigla-Bobinski
Named after 19th century English mathematician, Ada Lovelace, ADA is a self-forming artwork and post-industrial “creature”, resembling a molecular hybrid from nano biotechnology. Filled up with helium and spiked with charcoals, the membrane-like globe floats freely in each room it is located and leave marks on the walls, ceilings and floors. It is meant to be a movement to experience visually, like a computer that generates unforeseeable output after receiving a command. > more
