Installations that make you go hmmm -CHIHARU SHIOTA

And by hmmm I mean wow.  I am a huge fan of large scale installations and Chiharu Shiota is one artist that gets it very right.  I had the pleasure of seeing one of her installations in person at Art Basel’s new “Unlimited” section in Switzerland this year and it took my breath away. Walking through the piece made my heart pound with excitement.  It’s sort of the same feeling I would get as a child when my grandparents took me to the bookstore and let me pick out whatever I liked, the deep sense of awe and excitement can still illicit giggles and a racing pulse from me.

If I could give out prizes for awesome installations I would. Giant gold stars for amazing installation artists.  Maybe I’ll bring a pack of gold stars to Miami this year…I’ll just run around putting gold stars on the stuff I like. Lol.

Anyway, enjoy the work of Chiharu Shiota and be sure to watch the video at the end.

Gold star gold star gold star.
