Belgium-born artist Carsten Holler was originally trained as a scientist with a doctorate in biology yet he creates these great installations often inspired by research experiments and the world around him. This guy is pretty famous and does installations all over the world from New York to Milan. His work often reflects social spaces like amusement parks, the zoo or a playground with his own artistic twist. He’s well known for creating based upon mushrooms. Since 1994, they’ve been a regular feature in his works. Of course, in true artist style, these aren’t your ordinary mushroom, they’re gigantic ones, and sometimes, they’re suspended from the ceiling!
