Carsten Höller at Casey Kaplan (Armory)

Carsten Höller Kabine 2003-2007 acrylic glass 54" x 18" x 21" [installation view]

Casey Kaplan had this seductive piece by Carsten Höller lying on the floor outside the gallery's Armory booth, just waiting for this blogger nut, with his obsession about minimalist transportation designs, to pass by and scoop it up - metaphorically, of course. I love this piece, but I probably cannot account for my passion in art terms alone.

For those who can't quite make it out in this picture, inside the teardrop-shaped capsule there is the suggestion of a perfectly-reclined seat awaiting its lone time-and-space passenger/operator.
