Aqueous Fluoreau: Photos by Mark Mawson
“Created by photographer Mark Mawson, the Aqueous Fluoreau series has a sculptural aesthetic that gives it a tangible presence. From mushroom clouds to squid-like shapes, the forms created are ever changing and full of life. Relying purely on creation and imagination, the Aqueous Fluoreau series shows a range of possibility when it comes not only to photography, but to abstract art as well. Like Rorschach inkblots, this series also relies on interpretation.”
Giant tornado of piggybacked men by Korean artist Do Ho Suh
This giant tornado of piggybacked men is an installation by Korean artist Do Ho Suh that is currently on display at Western Washington University .
“‘Cause & Effect’ evokes a vicious tornado. This vast ceiling installation is a composition of densely hung strands that anchor thousands of figures clad in colors resembling a Doppler reading stacked atop one another,” said Do Ho Suh, adding that the artwork is a “physical realization of existence, suggesting strength in the presence of numerous individuals. The work is an attempt to decipher the boundaries between a single identity and a larger group, and how the two conditions coexist.”
