Dubai's rare urban boutique hotel, VIDA Downtown will be welcoming Japanese artist, Yasuaki Onishi next month to create a virtual world of his famous floating art installations. The space that's known for embracing the next generation of entrepreneurial minds to stay, play and connect will be hosting the artist in collaboration with local art gallery, The Mine. As part of it's second arts programme #ARTINVIDA, the hotel will host Onishi's piece called 'Reverse of Volume'; A creation of monumental and mountainous forms that appear to float in space, made out of the simplest materials of plastic sheeting and black hot glue. Onishi's point of the draping installation? To conduct a different approach to how his visitors view his art work from outside of the glass as well as inside the gallery space. Reverse of Volume will be showcasing at VIDA Downtown from March 16th.
