The artist’s website explains:
“[‘Gas Giant’] is composed of cube-shaped kites in colorful groupings that hang from the ceiling of the large gallery space. Nature is alluded to in this work as well as a drifting, gravity-less cloud of land mixes with imagery of sky. Simultaneously controlled yet loose, violent yet stayed, the installation conveys the powerful and overwhelming sensation of watching a natural phenomenon while simultaneously illustrating the subjective nature of memory and the elements which conjure it.”

Anyhoo, I was reminded of a nice surprise—almost a year ago to the day—when I happened upon the Chicago Kite Festival without having known said festival exists. The sky looked like a toddler’s playroom in peak multitask mode.
Wild. Messy. Fun.
In other words, my kind of sky.
