Yatsuaki Onishi’s Reverse Of Volume was a remarkable installation at the Rice Gallery last summer. Onishi piled cardboard boxes on top of each other to provide the frame work for delicate plastic wrap, which was affixed to the ceiling by thousands of strands of black hot wax. The result is a incredible envelope, enabled by a form finding process through imprecise elements. It’s an incredible process, and both of the videos here are very much worth watching.
