With a few simple tools, artist Aakash Nihalani transforms ordinary spaces into wildly imaginative and playful ones. By creating visually dimensional shapes out of tape, cardboard and paint, seemingly sterile spaces become interactive. Making the impossible seem possible.

Gabriel Dawe’s thread installations are magnificent. Using all the colors of the rainbow, crossing and warping the threads creating illusions and depth. I love how the piece changes depending on your point of view.

Thread is such a simple, common place object; lately, I’ve been enjoying the abundance of artist and crafters who have been pushing the limits of this versatile material. Anne Lindberg has been using thread to create linear drawings, ominous installations and massive sculptures. Her installation pieces appear to float in space as they freely pass through the gallery walls.

At the age of 22, Motoi Yamamoto left his job at the dockyards to pursue art full-time. Six years later, he embarks on an artistic journey to memorialize the death of his younger sister who died from complications with brain cancer. Motoi draws out a labyrinth to symbolize a map of the brain, letting memories guide his hand, while allowing imperfections in the floor to dictate the layout of the design. At the end of each exhibition, the community is invited back to clear out the salt; taking the salt away in various containers and returning it to the sea.

These gigantic protozoa-like monsters are every balloon animal’s nightmare. Jason Hackenwerth creates these amazingly colorful and complex creatures out of ordinary balloons. There something unsettling about these magnified bacteria looming about in public spaces and chasing children around (but in the end there diminished size will betray this aggressive behavior).
