Soo Sunny Park- Playing With Light And Space

Other people do gardening and watch movies on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays, I’ve been on Colossal.com all morning. Again. And I’ve decided that I wish I was in Houston, Texas for my Monday off so I could visit the Rice Gallery, and stand in awe of this spectacular installation by Soo Sunny Park. Although, I’m aware that it’s probably not a holiday there… (***Edit- Apparently, today is Memorial Day. I’ve been bluffed, like a scruff…***) Anyway. Soo Sunny Park has an awesome imagination. The descriptions of her sculptures on her website show humour and insight, engaging the viewer and drawing them in to her world of colour and light. My favourite, the Chain Link Fence titled Unwoven Light, can be seen below, as well as on the afore mentioned website Colossal (as well as a pretty nifty video about the piece and artist), Soo Sunny Park’s website, and Rice Gallery website.
