I just discovered the incredible work of Sayuri Sasaki Hemann via The Weaver House. Hemann describes her work on this project, Underwater Aquarium, as an exploration of "the concept of being 'out of context' or 'displaced' by recreating a jellyfish aquarium in places where you least expect."
That unexpected element, even when viewed on my computer screen, is exactly what makes this breathtaking installation at Portland International Airport so bewitching. I dare you to visit the post on The Weaver House and Hemann's website and not be entranced--and as ready to catch a flight to Portland as I am.

P.S. Sorry for going silent (again). I got wiped out by an allergic reaction on Sunday and wasn't up to anything by the time work was over yesterday.
