나랑 레고 놀이 할래?



























                                                                                     꼼짝 않고 가만 있는 레고








         만들었다 부수어트리는 레고 놀이는
     내가 너를 움직이는 것보다 쉬운 일 같아.



니 눈엔 움직이는 것이 보이지 않어?







































레고인간은
내가 보지 않으니
혼자 걸어서 나오잖아.

































너 자신도 못 움직이는

너는

이 레고인간보다 나은것 같어?











너의 방에서

어서 걸어

나와!









사람들이 다하는 보편성이 있는 일을 하지 않고 다른 일을 시도하는 것은 쉬운 일이 아니다.
아이들이나 갖고 노는 레고를 가지고 자신의 일로 살아가는 사람이 있어서 소개해본다.
자신이 하던 변호사 일을 뒤로 하고 진정으로 하고 싶은 일을 하는 이 사람, 다 부러울 것이다.





Nathan Sawaya is so much obsessed with Lego that he left his lawyer job in NY to become a master lego builder. Sawaya now has a studio in the big Apple with over 1.5 million Lego bricks which he uses to create jaw dropping structure like these. (More images after the jump)

위 동영상 내용

Hi, we're here with Nathan Sawaya, an artist who works primarily with Legos. It's so nice to meet you. It's nice to meet you. Uhm, so now, you didn't start out, just, you know.. as an artist making Lego sculptures. You started out as a lawyer, correct? It's true, I did practice law for a number of years but I'd come home at the end of the day and I'd want to do something creative, to, you know.. end the day. Some people go to the gym at the end of the day. For me, it was being creative. I would sculpt, I would paint, I would draw, and sometimes I would even build with Lego. It was about 8 years ago that I kind of just challenged myself, and said.. I wonder if I could build a whole large-scale sculpture using just Lego bricks. And that's what really got it started. Soon I was getting commissions from all over the world and I realized, you know, maybe this law thing isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Maybe I should try something else, and eventually, 4 years ago, I left the practice of law to play with Lego all day. Full time. Full time, Lego artist. So.. you have everything from, you know, life-size sculptures of Steven Cobaire, to uhm, you know, cookies, to really basically anything you can think of. What, Where do you find your inspiration? Is it, is there any kind of music, you know, what really inspires you? Well inspiration is a funny thing. It comes from all sorts of places. I'll have ideas for projects that.. they'll germinate for over the course of 2 years before I actually get down to building them. A lot of my ideas just come from my travelling. I travel a lot. I'm always meeting new people. Mhmm. And when I'm really stuck, when I have builder's block, I'll just take a walk in the city, you know, walk around New York and I usually get something, get the juices flowing, and the inspiration comes, so it's really from everywhere. Okay, do you have a favorite piece? Is there any piece that you just, you know.. It, it, it's hard to say what's my favorite piece. Mhmm. If I have to pick a favorite piece, I might say the next one, because I really like the challenge, of building and creating and what's gonna happen next. Uhm, over the years, I've done some, really fun pieces and uh, I suppose, one was a project I did for New Orleans, after the Katrina devastation. Mhmm. I did a piece called the "Rebirth of New Orleans," uh, which was commissioned by the New Orleans Public Library, and uh, a part of that was just celebrating the rebirth of the city and so I did a large scale hand, with this giant colorful city coming out of it, and, so that was a very special piece for me. Uhm, so right now, you have a tour, called, uhm, "The Art of the Brick." Right. It's touring United States, where is it right now? Uh, it's in Philadelphia, in the American Swedish Historical Museum. Okay, and when people go, what can they expect to see there? You know, what kind of pieces do you have? At that exhibit, I have a variety of pieces of, there's like 25 different, uh, sculptures that have been created over the past few years and it's a body of work that's uhh.. really just came out of my emotions. Uhm, you know, I do get commissions all the time from people, from all over the world, and those are projects where I'll build something for someone who wants something specific, but then I like to build for myself as well. Mhmm. And that's what really came out in this museum exhibit. So it's uh, it's a, interesting group of projects, some are very whimsical, some are very .... it, and you know, we're getting real good reaction, both kids and parents, and adults alike are really enjoying what they're seeing there, so it's pretty fun. So.. besides, you know, museum tours and things like that, people, you mentioned, people commission you to, you know, do anything from I guess, sculptures of themselves, right, to you know, basically anything they want. Uhm, if I commissioned you to make a sculpture of me, you know, how long would that take you? How long does something like that take you? Well, a sculpture of you, would probably take about 3-4 weeks. Uhm, I recently partnered up with Nemen Marcus, where we're going to be offering life-size sculptures, of people, as the fantasy gift this year in their 2008 holiday gift book. And so uh, people can contact Nemen and come to me, and, I will actually create sculptures of you, or of your loved ones, uh, as a gift, uh, this year. But uh, they generally take 3-4 weeks, depending on the size, complexity, you know, it's a long process. So Nathan, can you tell me a little bit about, more about Brick Artist dot com? Well Brick Artist dot com is where it all got started. That's my website and originally, I just put some photos up there and soon, I was getting commissions from all around the world. Uhm, and now I get thousands, and, tens of thousands of hits everyday. And uh, so, it's uh, it's where it all started and people can always check back there for my latest and greatest creation. So that's where you get kind of, all your commissioned pieces. Exactly, a lot of people contact me right through the website, at Nathan@BrickArtist.com, and uh, request crazy projects. Has there been any projects that's so crazy that you say, "I can't do it, it's not physically possible to make."? Well, you know, I've had some really funky projects over the years, and it's very fun, one of the craziest that I just got requested to do was uh for Pete Wentz. And he wanted something for his bride-to-be at the time, Ashlee Simpson, and he wanted a large bumblebee. Because. Ohh! Uh, they have a little history there with bumblebees, so that was a fun project for me but I, I made that happen for them. That's awesome, well thank you again so much for talking with us. My pleasure, thank you. This is Katie Cain and I'm here with Nathan Sawaya. 

내용도 좋지만 이들의 대화를 통해 영어공부에도 도움이 되길 진심으로 바란다.


Nathan Sawaya (born July 10, 1973), is an artist who builds custom three-dimensional models and large-scale mosaics from popular everyday items and standard Lego toy bricks. His unique art creations are commissioned by companies, charities, individuals, museums and galleries.

Born in Colville, Washington and raised in Veneta, Oregon, Sawaya attended New York University, where he earned bachelors and law degrees, eventually practicing law at the firm Winston & Strawn.

He first came to national attention in 2004, when he won a nationwide search for a professional Lego Master Model Builder.[1]

After working for the Lego company for six months, he branched off and opened his own art studio in New York and is officially recognized by The Lego Group as a Lego Certified Professional.[2]

He had his first solo art exhibit in the Spring of 2007 at the Lancaster Museum of Art. "The Art of the Brick" is the first major museum exhibition in the U.S. to focus exclusively on the use of Lego building blocks as an art medium.
