Yoko Ono & Arata Isozaki - Penal Colony (2004)
and one remembers one’s innocence
and one remembers one’s exuberance
and one remembers one’s reverence
and one remembers one’s perseverance
there is a season that never passes
and that is the season of glass
John Powers creates geometric installations and sculptures that use simple blocks to form interesting patterns with depth and form. The zoomed in view of these pieces makes them look like more like computer generated images than tangible art. Powers states, “I very much like that my work looks digital, that it reflect my exposure to the technologies around me, but I like also that it is handmade out of base materials.”

Drip by Takashi Masubuchi
Takashi Masubuchi from the Tokyo University of the Arts used petroleum based paint products to create his graduation project Drip.
He created this sculpture with a gigantic cube of Styrofoam by slowly and carefully dripping black or white paint onto its surface. The acidic paint ate its way through the Styrofoam cubes and creates surreal organic forms.
44’ x 32’ x 12’, painted tracing paper, drypoint on gampi, glue, string
Viewers enter this installation under a vaulted ceiling structure that is like an inverted honeycomb. Drypoint images hang from the walls. Visitors participate by inflating flat paper boxes with exhaled breath, inserting a written wish, and tying these to the ends of a strings hanging from the ceiling. Over the course of the exhibition, there is an accumulation of boxes in and around the golden canopy.
