Intersections - Houston art installation

Houston art installation--

One of my favorite things about living in Houston is that there is always something to do or see. On top of that, the quality of the entertainment, the sights, the venues and the art that is available is world class. 

Last week while browsing through my Instagram feed, I saw a photo of an art installation called Intersections that was on view at the Rice Gallery at Rice University. I had seen photos of it previously and had planned to go, but as life goes, I got busy and forgot about it. Under the photo, the caption mentioned that the installation was only on view though Sunday, Dec. 6. I knew I had to go see it immediately or I was going to miss out on experiencing this beautiful piece of work. So I marked in on my calendar for the following afternoon, and as soon as I was finished working that day, I grabbed my camera and headed to Rice.

The campus of Rice University is a work of art in itself with it's oak tree lined drives and beautiful architecture. No wonder so many photographers book bridal portrait sessions there. It's incredible! 

As soon as I walked into the Rice Gallery and turned into the room where Intersections was on display, I knew it was worth taking the time to visit. In some ways, this piece of art is the most simple concept...a light inside a wooden box with geometric shapes cut into it casts shadows. But Intersections is so much more than just simple. It's brilliant! It's stunning and though provoking, and I hope my photos do justice to showing what the artist, Anila Quayyum Agha, has created.

To read more about Intersections, visit the Rice Gallery website. Unfortunately this exhibit is no longer on display.

WOW! These are so awesome! And very cool to look at for long periods of time, I'm sure in person it is even more amazing!
Love these images. I just recently got one of those adult coloring books and I can't help but want to color in the shapes. haha. Happy New Year!
This is such a lovely installation. Your post reminded me of how many cool things to do are in the Philly area (my city) that I need to be more proactive in enjoying!

I have always been fascinated by the shapes created by negative space and light - great shots. I wish I could have seen this in person (just because), but your images of it are beautiful.
So cool! Love the geometric patterns in this installation and the way you captured the space. It's always great to get inspiration from something other than the computer screen, isn't it?
