Named ‘Boat’ this beautiful installation recently on display at ART13 London. is constructed from 8,000 sheets of rice paper, 800 bamboo shafts, and suspended by untold lengths of cotton thread / created by Chinese artist Zhu Jinshi  / The impressive installation was assembled over a three-day period by a crew of workers from Hong Kong who delicately layered the historically- and culturally-relevant paper onto the bamboo poles. The Boat acts as a metaphor with both western and eastern significance: the artist’s personal voyage from east to west. (via colossal)
