Here’s a timeless formula for top-shelf eye candy – take 50,000 multi-coloured polystyrene balls, suspend them in mid-air to create a dense spectrum of colour, turn a nearby fan on and let the balls move gently. To seal the deal, wait for the viewers to pick their jaws up from the floor and watch their collective desire to walk through the valley of coloured balls grow to climactic proportions.
This is exactly what artist Nike Savvas did in the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art back in 2005, but as Black Dog Publishing have just released Full of Love, Full of Wonder it’s an opportune moment giving us all a chance to revel in her brilliance afresh. To paraphrase Jack White at his recent London gig: “If you don’t like this, you don’t like ice-cream.”
