A couple weeks ago Chad and I had the pleasure of attending an opening at Lever House for my friend Tara Donovan's newest sculpture.  We have both been long time fans of her work---but seeing it in person is an entirely different experience altogether. Facing the piece head on, it resembles an anatomical illustration or a cross section of bone marrow or tissue.  


Perhaps one of the most enticing aspects of Tara's works as a whole,  are their ability to completely transform from location to location.  She spoke about this very same piece being displayed previously in another gallery, against the wall without light shining through.  The lobby of the Lever House however, has floor to ceiling glass windows flooded with light that combined with the passing traffic creates a surprising kaleidoscope effect.

As you can see, a virtuoso cinematographer I am not.  Might have something to do with the reception's free flowing Prosecco.  This guy did a good job though:
