Causa-Efecto (Cause-Effect), an installation by Ana Soler recently caught our eye as it has multiplied across art/design sites. Like many contemporary artists, the Spanish-born Soler prefers working with the repetitive possibilities of everyday objects like dangerously dangling hundreds of scissors from the ceiling and creating swarms of spoons, coins or knives. In her most recent work, Soler hung 2,000 tennis balls throughout the Mustang Art Gallery in Alicante. The balls are organized in suspended trajectories that appear to bounce off walls, floors and other surfaces. Depending on your perspective, this web-like environment could be a playful call-to-action or Agassi’s childhood nightmare of the practice equipment gone ballistic.
