The Key In The Hand

Design You Trust is a website I like to peruse every so often. There is no regular visit you can count on from me, but there is usually something that grabs my interest when I do wander by there.

The Key In The Hand by Chiharu Shiota is a beautiful exhibition piece at the current Venice Biennale and is comprised of 50,000 keys suspended by what looks like miles of red thread above two boats.

Not only is the piece visually stunning, but discusses the idea(s) of journey, travel, and lives lived.
