Unwoven Light

I've seen a lot of art installations over the years, but this one will stay with me for a while (includes narration and background music, for those of you at work):

  1. How beautiful. I want to walk under those glittering disks of color...

    1. I was thinking what a great outdoor installation it would make -- something like a labyrinth everyone could walk through -- with the sun shining on those panels, it could be gorgeous.

  2. Wow, that looks absolutely stunning. I'm always amazed at the creativity of artists to turn ordinary things - a chain link fence - into works of such ethereal beauty. I wish I lived in Houston so I could go see this in person. Thank you for sharing.

    1. I was shocked to realize she was using chain link fencing, too, Lynn. Amazing ingenuity.

  3. Wasn't able to listen (due to being at work lol) but it is lovely. Looks like dragon scales.

    1. If you have time away from work, do watch it with the sound enabled -- the artist has some interesting perspectives on her work.

  4. Wow... gorgeous. I could see actually using that idea in landscaping. Can't you just see a serpentine dragon , sprawled along the ground, then arched up above a gate? Or perched above a glittering castle wall...

    1. Funny how we all thought of dragons, Shawna. Once she started building the installation I thought of how Anne McCaffrey always described the jewel-like eyes of her Pern dragons. This artwork (on a smaller scale, naturally) would be an ideal physical translation of her imagery.

    That is beautiful. I love the way it changes with the different light during the course of a day.

    1. That is one of the neatest aspects of the piece -- it moves without movement, all through the play of light.
