Ryan Bubnis Installation at Perihelion Arts, Phoenix

Came across a really cool and involved solo installation by Ryan Bubnis! The gallery seemed to give him an entire gallery world of his own. I particularly like the last installation and the adorable and awkwardly-shaped sculptures. Photography by Cecilia Singer.
