The work of Italian artist Francesco Simeti is now on view at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami.  Simeti divides his time between Italy and New York.  He’s known for installation work and this work was created for Vizcaya’s Contemporary Art Project (CAP). You can read more about Simeti’s work in my post on the Knight Arts Blog.
