    houston TEXAS

    Soo Sunny Park’’s installation Unwoven Light animates Rice Gallery’’s expansive space, transforming it into a shimmering world of light, shadow, and brilliant color. Suspended from the walls and ceiling, thirty-seven individually sculpted units are arranged as a graceful, twisting flow of abstract form. Entering the gallery there is no set path to follow.
