Art can be any size, but when it's something we're supposed to interact with in some way, it helps when it's large. Large-scale art also, frequently, comes with a large impact - it is more striking. Large-scale art is also frequently associated with reclaimed materials and found objects.
Some examples of large-scale interactive art include: Russian artist Nikolay Polissky is known for producing large-scale interactive sculptures that feature organic shapes and materials. His latest work, which is named Beaubourg after one of the oldest areas of Paris, was inspired by the architecture of Paris' Centre Georges Pompidou museum. The 22-meter-high sculpture looks like a cluster of horns or pipes, and it's made from birch sticks and twigs that have been fastened to a metal frame using traditional weaving methods. The towering sculpture is currently on display at the Nikola-Lenivets sculpture park located in an artist community near Moscow.

In some ways, the Russian village of Nikola-Lenivets in December looks like Burning Man's creativity was copied and pasted onto the tundra. The eccentric art installations bring over 30,000 visitors to the tiny village and its surrounding territory each year, bolstering the still struggling economy.
Books like Evidence really catapulted found-object art into the mainstream a few years ago. But they have nothing on artist David Trautrimas, whose Habitat Machines series transforms everyday objects into eerie, fantastical, neo-industrial buildings.
