This morning, Instagram took to, uh, Instagram to post photos of this year’s art program at Coachella. You don’t need to look that closely to realize each photo is missing one notable element: people. The company is using the hashtag #EmptyCoachella to give the installations (and the artist’s) their due; get a load of four major pieces in their unsullied glory before the flower-crowned masses obstruct the view.
Chiaozza‘s “Chiaozza Garden”
The artists Terri Chiao and Adam Frezza are behind the works of Chiaozza (pronounced “wowza”). These sculptures use pastel and fluorescent colors to punch up an otherwise brown desert.
Gustavo Prado‘s “Lamp Beside the Golden Door”
Using rounded and angled mirrors, Brazillian artist Gustavo Prado plays with light and reflections in this sculpture.
Olalekan Jeyifous‘s “Crown Ether”
Born in Nigeria and based in Brooklyn, Olalekan Jeyifous is partial to unconventional architecture. This angular structures’ bright colors clash with the desert and cast an interesting shadow on the ground below.
Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan‘s “Is This What Brings Things Into Focus?”
U.K. duo Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan’s animalistic, otherworldly sculpture clocks in at 75 feet.
