Longtime BB readers may remember Ji Lee's fantastic 2005 "Bubble Project" where he stuck blank speech bubbles all over signs and billboards in NYC. Ji just emailed me about his fun new project:
People decorate their walls and floors, but most of them overlook their ceilings. It's such a waste of vast space. So I started to install miniature parallel worlds on the ceilings upon commission. It's fun to watch the reactions of people who after a while discover the parallel universe. They always smile. I think it makes their mind tickle.Link
I have installed skiing slopes, disaster scenes and art galleries. The theme of the scene is determined by the combination of the commissioner's interest, architectural elements of the ceiling and Ji Lee's suggestions.
