Ludwika Ogorzelec's latest installation of the "Space Crystallization" cycle is up for a few more days at the Nancy Margolis Gallery in New York. This lattice of stretchy plastic is meticulously woven inside and outside the gallery to create a beautiful bio-technical form. Jutting out from the side of the building, it's impossible to miss when walking by or driving down the street. You're confronted with the piece even more aggressively when you enter the gallery-- it hangs down to about 5 feet above the floor, requiring a crouch and shuffle just to get in the gallery.
More pictures after the jump.
