Konoike Tomoko, “The Planet is Covered in Silvery Sleep” (2006)

"Multi-discplinary artist Tomoko Konoike works with crystalline structures, whether drawing them with graphite or building them from broken mirrors and glass. The artist works on a large-scale, blending the geological forms with surreal human and animal characters to create a dark, cool ambiance evocative of caves, forests and even outer space. Konoike has a show coming up at Gallery Wendi Norris in San Francisco titled “Earthshine,” on view September 5 through October 26.” - Hi-Fructose

Something about making this largely inaccessible really makes this installation shine.

I’ve been making some radio. It’s a new medium for me.

I’m featured in the first episode of my friend Harris’s radio show. Check it out.

thru Jan 6: “the event of a thread” Ann HamiltonPark Avenue Armory, 643 Park Ave., NYC (bt 66th & 67th)Tickets $12 General, $10 Students/Seniors, Free for Kids“At its core, the installation features two fields of suspended swings connected via ropes and pulleys to each other and to a massive white curtain that bisects the 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall. Each swing has its counterpart on the other side and it is the visitor’s momentum on the swing that activates a rolling undulation of the curtain. The resultant movement brought on by one swing is enhanced when another visitor engages the corresponding swing on the opposite side. The movement of the curtain alone is mesmerizing and the beauty is that the curtain remains in a continual state of flux set in motion by the interaction of visitors.” - Hyperallergic

Anyone want to go in person? I adore Ann Hamilton.
