Artist Soo Sunny Park leads us through real-life pearly gates with her large-scale installation Unwoven Light. Using twisting fragments of chain-link fence as massive frames, Park fills the common wire structure with hundreds of plexiglass squares, each piece taking almost ninety hours to complete. Like giant diamonds doused with light, the sinuous installations hung in Rice University‘s gallery space, transforming the blank white box into a luminous crystalline world sparkling with color and movement.

With the help of a private commission, artist Hense was brought on to baptize this church into a new beginning and bring a little color to the local neighborhood. [Read more...]

Tuesday 09.18.2012 , Posted by

Think of it as a trampoline which grows a verdant carpet of plant life. Floating well above the floor a net of fabric springs to life in the form of bright green sprouts. The piece allows viewers to interact with the space, climbing up through manhole like openings in the fabric, poking their heads into its green rolling landscape and climbing onto its springy surface.
