Parasolvent by: Dan Benedict from: Anaheim, CA year: 2014
Parasolvent is a mechanical expression of loss, release, healing and decay. Participants turn a crank to rotate a 20’ tall ring of red parasols. The collapsed parasols rise up through the chest cavity of a human figure and gradually open as they climb upwards, reaching full extension at the apex, and slowly closing as they descend.
This piece is a meditation on the idea that engineering and architecture can create a space or object that acts a vessel for spiritual healing; imagining something we have held inside of us, be it sickness or pain, leaving us, rising, blossoming and decaying.
