Picture Of The Day

"Ubiquitous" by Naoko Ito. I both like and dislike this piece for pretty much the same reason. What do you think?

It's not something I'd want on my coffee table but I like it. Clean lines and nicely proportioned - very original.

I give up. What's your reason?

I like it one L because of the way it changes one's perspective on and definition of what a tree branch can be but I dislike that it reminds me of how American society is becoming increasingly cut off from nature, symbolically encasing it in hermetically sealed containers for easy categorization. I find it obviously organic yet also cold and devoid of life at the same time.

Interesting.

I don't think I'd want to own it because it takes up way too much space and probably doesn't look as good from other angles.

I like all kinds of art that I'd never want in my home, one L. The various paintings, sculptures, masks and statues that I own are only the ones that made the final cut.
