Akiko Kotani’s installation Soft Walls is made up entirely of crocheted plastic. Thousands of square feet of this one, commonplace material will hang from the walls and trickle down onto the floor. The internal structure and the external flexibility evoke a strange yet fascinating depth of feeling.

Akiko’s work is clean, light and refreshing. Very open feeling
