Continuing her ongoing meditations on human concerns such as life, death, and relationships, Shiota tackles the current era’s endless amount of information through an immersive installation that uses her signature threads to explore breadth and space. “It has never been easier to receive information from all over the world,” writes Shiota. “The volume of information is like a wave, swallowing my body.” Suspended within the web are boats that “float within the space, like a body floating in water,” struggling to find a sense of direction within an oceanic morass that, as she describes, “gradually expands into the Universe.”
