This is crazy cool. Sandy Smith made this installation of all these different computer model types to make this installation room. The piece is titled Mauritian Sunset and it was shown in 2006. Can you only imagine dealing with all of those cords? Bravo!

This is great, reminds me of the New York I knew when I was a little kid. I'm guessing this is some time in the 80's

Kaytsuyo Aoki

Katsuyo Aoki’s delicate porcelain works on display, including Predictive dream IX and Trolldom, combine both decorative patterns and paints of blue and purple baked on parts of the white porcelain, creating a smeared-like appearance. Presented in an entirely stark white room, the sculptural pieces which bear a mixture of traditional ornamentation decorum of symmetry together with fantastical depictions of other-worldly creatures and skulls, draw viewers into an enclosure befitting a religious and mythical experience. Aoki creates these works based on what she terms her “inner shadow” of imagination and fantasies, and strives to convey both a sense of strength and fragility to parallel the nature of human societies anchored on the advance of technology and progress, while remaining fractious and imperfect.
