  1. This concept hits home as i have been saving the colorful plastic bottle lids for almost 2 years now to make a social commentary piece similar to his works. I wish the article had more photos of this show as many seem to be of quite some scale. I thought this was a powerful passage;

    “Mr. Sime has said that the title refers to the precarious balance a city must maintain to survive and thrive, and “Tightrope 7” might be read as a bird’s-eye view of Addis Ababa, now in the midst of a disorienting transformation. But his work, while culturally specific, has always been universalist”

    It reveals that the works are as multidemensaion in concept as they are material.
