- Morning Light, 2005 - foam sheet

the dainty white on white, foam-sheet merry-go-round merriment of Kana Harada's Morning Light would not be complete without their mirrored splashes of shadow dancing all around; ...

I'm liking this less, here, far from the white walls and multiple spotlights and their echoing intricate shadows dancing in the slight wind of people passing and errant AC drafts. But there, floating in imperceptible wafts, This Morning Light was almost alive, decorative paddles steering its long escape pod stairway far down into the real world below.
