Mia Pearlman




MAELSTROM is a giant multilevel mobile, 12 feet in diameter and 11 feet high, with 6 independently rotating (360°) layers of cut paper. An upside-down whirlpool, it echoes both the East River currents and the cloud formations visible through the windows.
I wish I could see Mia Pearlman's work in person. I wish a lot of things actually...

Hey Eleanor - Since you love Mia Pearlman's work as much as I do, check this post out. It's a picture timeline of her evolution as an artist plus there will be an interview with Mia this Friday!
