If you’re anywhere near NYC before the end of the year, I really recommend a visit to the Asia Society Museum on Park Avenue in Manhattan. On display until December 31st is Guardian of the Hole by Korean artist U-Ram Choe. A creature lays on the floor, beached on a pile of sand, while dozens of mechanical wings reach up into the air. The entire sculpture, which Choe refers to as an “anima-machine,” moves and breathes, although the motions are very subtle. You can read an interview with the artist and see his work online here.
