I went to see Chiharu Shiota’s solo exhibition “The Soul Trembles” last month, as suggested by my good friend Miss A. (thank you!). To say that it was an eye opening lesson in contemporary and installation art would be an understatement – the ethereal sensation that I felt from observing her works was both of awe and fear… I can still feel it even now.

This illustration is inspired by her string sculptures, and the magnitude of planning she must have gone through for every single installation.
