There’s an exhibit at the Rice Gallery right now called Dans la Lune, a large-scale installment of enormous, paper pendants. Everything in the exhibit is hand-made out of paper lit from within: larger-than-life gems and crystals, intricate chains, complex accordianed paper globes. Each pendant is its own panorama, and the longer you look the more you see. A small paper swing hanging from a branch. A cameo. A hanging gazebo with a woman leading a horse inside. All made of paper. It’s pretty amazing.
If you are a Houston person I recommend stopping to see the exhibit. It’s a good study break.
