reverse of volume RG

Visitors to the Rice University Art Gallery in Houston, Texas are confronted with a topographical form suspended from the ceiling. The latest iteration in Yasuaki Onishi's reverse of volume series (on display until June 24, 2012) also uses plastic sheeting and black hot glue to "leave clues on the space," as the artist has said. His process involves using stacked cardboard boxes as a formwork that is removed to create its trace, an accessible space below the translucent plastic.  jh
