Inspired by the ever-changing underwater life, Portland-based multidisciplinary artist Sayuri Sasaki Hemann creates a breathtaking jellyfish aquarium, titled ‘Underwater Flight’ in a place where you least expect it, the Portland International Airport. Continuing her exploration of the way light is reflected on different mediums, Sayuri experiments with colored organza, wool felting fibers and silk to build this magical underwater kingdom.
This installation is part of ‘Urban Aquarium’, an ongoing project that aims to “create a dialogue between viewers about context and displacement and about the unexpected.” | via http://inspir3d.net/2012/08/19/underwater-flight-by-sayuri-sasaki-hemann/

Pandanus coiled basket (in progress) by Tania Bishop I have just spent the past 3 days at Ceres, (in Brunswick Melbourne) participating in a weaving workshop, given by a beautiful group of women from Mapuru, which is in East Arnhem Land. I worked on a coiled pandanus basket, under the guidance of Margaret, who is a master weaver and elder of the community. I’ll post a few more photos of my basket and share stories of the workshop.
