Chiharu Shiota...

I thought this Japanese installation artist would be worth a quick mention, although not having any major connection or direct relevance in relation to the stuff that i'm doing currently, i find her enveloping. The sheer scale and occupation of a space that she emblazons with such enigmatic haunting and inexorable unnerving, she constitutes her personal avenue of designation within existence. 

As i say her influence on my own working with installation is a little out of league however, i am just looking at the use of material and objects fused with the space itself and how it is rendered in combined form as relation to the proposed message or idea. I very much like the concept of performance art or a personal ceremony in which Chiharu is signifying in the bathtub...conceivably enlightening.
