In the interest of not posting yet another review of a colorful and whimsical art museum installation but still offering new works, I will keep my discussion of this piece brief.  “Gravity’s Loom,” by the Ball-Nogues Studio was the winter lobby installation at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. The cavernous lobby lends itself spectacularly to a piece of this magnitude. It’s a fascinating phenomenon to observe such thin strings hung so delicately that still create such massive color and movement. It’s almost like a representation of light or sound, void of a physical mass but still possessing the power to alter the physical world. Perhaps in twelve years it will be cast by James Cameron to star in the next ‘Avatar’ film.
