Excerpted: At Pulse, South Korean artist Hong Seon Jang, with Denver’s David B. Smith Gallery, had spent the whole day constructing Black Mirage, a towering, ethereal waterfall of spider web thin black threads — made with a hot glue gun — cascading over another transparent, ladder-like web of fishing line stapled to the wall. At the end of the fair, it will come down, too delicate to move.
“An idea doesn’t exist. Then you make it tangible form, then you take it down and it doesn’t exist any more,” Jang said. “Like magic.”
