OUR COLUMNIST VSOCOLSKY BRINGS A NEW APPROACH TO THE IDEA OF THE SUBLIME:
‘Rodrigo, I’ve already told you this several times: you have the gift of putting into words what your sharp eyes can see. You made a perfect description of this installations.
I guess I forgot to comment on the extraordinary post about La Nuit Blanche a Londres. The last two videos, Le souffle comme recitant, et La mer were both poetic and sublime.
Today I found this installation and I wanted to share it with you. It reminds me a little bit to Ange Leccia.

THIS IS THE TEXT OF THE ARTICLE IN DESIGNBOOM.COM:
‘japanese artist yasuaki onishi has installed an immersive sculpture made from glue and crystals at an old japanese sake winery in nara prefecture, yamatokoriyama city. ‘vertical emptiness (organic parabola)’ is a mass of fragile strings that are suspended from the ceiling’s wooden beams, materializing into a volume of delicate fibers. the piece is created from long, dripping strands of liquid hot glue that are each covered in a crystalline material. by standing on a ladder, he carefully drizzles the fine threads into place, resulting in branch-like growths that hang from the ceiling in sweeping, undulating shapes. the chiaroscuro of the room becomes a significant part of the artwork’s tone: the installation takes on a delicate, aerial chroma, while the cellar it sits inside is a deep, shadowy space.‘vertical emptiness’ is part of an exhibition ‘HANARART: inter-world-body‘ and will be displayed until october 20th’
