In his installation, Reverse of Volume, Yasuaki Onishi uses the simplest materials — plastic sheeting and black hot glue — to create a monumental, mountainous form that appears to float in space. The process he calls “casting the invisible” is Onishi’s meditation on the nature of the negative space, or void, left behind. Visitors will be able to walk among the contemplative space, and observe how the simplest qualities of light, shape and line change from different perspectives.
