vertical emptiness

Words

Japanese artist Onishi Yasuaki is known for his ethereal and seemingly weightless installations of plastic membranes suspended in midair by black hot glue. Now he embarked on a slightly different approach with his latest work, ‘Vertical Emptiness’. Currently on view at the Kyoto Art Center, the piece is made from upside down tree branches from which is draped a delicate framework of hot glue and crystallized urea compounds. The result is a sort of frozen snowfall that connects the gallery floor and ceiling. You can see the piece in much more detail in the video below by Kuroyanagi Takashi.
