Midori Harima @ Honey Space

I mentioned Honey Space a while's a gallery that I dig over on the West Side Highway (btwn 21st & 22nd) that's left open unattended during the day.

Anyway, right now they feature this cool installation by Japanese artist Midori Harima. The room is super dark, with this bright white sculpture of a carousel greeting you as you enter. The details of the carousel itself are projected onto the white sculpture, so it looks rather surreal in person! Flat yet three-dimensional, like an old photograph that's come to life. (I've seen this technique before...but for the life of me couldn't remember which contemporary artist it was! It was a feminist artist...that's gonna drive me crazy)
