In the past month I’ve come across a few works made of traffic cones, so I decided to explore more and see what else is out there. Here are some of my favorites; from installations and sculptures to traffic cone inspired graphic design.

From top to bottom and left to right:
Estudio Teddy Cruz’s installation Cultural Traffic at Fondazione Maxxi (top 2 pics); Dennis Oppenheim’s sculpture Safety ConesRescue Bubble by Tomer Diamant at the Royal Botanical Gardens; Crocodile by Allee Willis; 2005 Burning Man installation; Hedgehog, a temporary performance pavilion to raise money for young homeless made of 300 traffic cones on a steel frame by EFGH (x3 photos); Bottom 6 images are part of the World Summit and Congress of Architecture at the Design Expo in Taipei by Paprika, brochure included.

    I think that it’s quite important (and honest) to quote the artist BIBI . He performed a crocodile with traffic cones in 2003. He has created the urban hunting with traffic cones in 2001.
    Let’s talk about the first one’s !

    I have a question, I’m looking for an art book containing pictures of the Burning Man Traffic Cone Camp.

    Can anyone help me out ?

    Thank you
