“Parmenides I” is a contemporary art installation by artist Dev Harlan, consisting of an interesting mix of foam, wood, plaster, and video projections. An eight foot diameter sculpture was used as a main element in a light show that can be described as original and captivating. According to Laughing Squid, the white polygonal shape is brought to life by having various intricate patterns projected on its surface. The film below was shot during Dev Harlan’s solo exhibition “The Astral Flight Hangar”, at the Christopher Henry Gallery in New York City. We imagine it was quite interesting to watch the display live. You can observe from the movie that the effect of the light show is pretty strong, especially when complemented by great background music. We find this game of light and shapes to be a bit hypnotic and are curious to see your reactions after seeing the film.

Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
