This video interview features artist Sreekishen Nair, who created the Made Here installation, "Sprites."
The installation at 811 LaSalle Ave. S. features large-scale textiles featuring images of insects. "'Sprites' is a visual celebration of this beauty, and derives from the wonder that I feel when encountering it. Using textiles as a vehicle, my work reimagines these living shapes into large-scale statements of vibrant color, nebulous swirls and luminous scenery," he said in an artist statement.
