Mylar and Tara Donovan

Untitled, 2009

Tara Donovan is known for taking ordinary materials, like rolls of mylar tape, and creating beauty out of what was commonplace. I saw this work, Untitled 2009, at the Brooklyn Museum of Art recently and was just as blown away by what she had created here as I was when I first saw her wall installation of mylar at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2008. Tis a transformation devoutly to be wished, for all our perceptions of the ordinary to expand to see the beauty in it.
