The current exhibit at Rice Gallery is “Garden Object,” an installation by Rosario Hurtado and Roberto Feo, who run a design studio called El Ultimo Grito. The garden they’ve created at Rice is rather otherworldly, as gardens go. Here’s a link to the “making of” video, definitely worth 2 minutes of your day. For more information, including the artistic statement, visit the Rice Gallery site.
I love this love this love this. Here are a few thoughts from the photographer, David Chien:
I’m enveloped in Jacob Hashimoto’s Superabundant Atmosphere. The entire installation was made up of thousands of handmade kites hanging at different lengths from the ceiling.
In person, the piece was incredibly soothing and non-confrontational… unlike the photo — which actually makes it look more like an angry jelly fish wanting to suck my brains out.
The installation was created at the Rice Gallery here in Houston.
