View the installation time lapse of Sandra Selig’s ‘mid-air’

| 00:02:40

mid-air comprises differently sized styrofoam balls ‘beaded’ intermittently on lengths of clear nylon thread. Two sets of these ‘strings’, arranged in tubular compositions, span both the length and the breadth of the space, bisecting at approximate right angles. The threads create a fine ‘film’ of colourless texture and the appearance of the work shifts as the viewer passes around it.
