Marisa Kriangwiwat Holmes & Douglas Watt


Infinity Ball

29 January - 13 March 2022

This is the world’s most reflective ball.


This ball was in the mouth of a drooling Great Dane, laying poolside between shots with the star. 


There was a transparent ball that promised to superimpose games onto the world.


We’re only 4 balls away.


On my walk home I can see nine glistening balls hanging from the ceiling, rotating in a way that is steady and epic.


Those remind me of some others, hand painted and hovering above my sister’s second grade musical.


There is a Christmas gift that only I could have bought for myself. 


It would have kept rolling forever if the sales associate hadn’t put his foot on top.


Oh and the huge foil ball that split like a pant seam, mid-A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 


My hamster clearly had a ball and space station.


There was one that could have destroyed the entire bookstore.


Not related to its own clairvoyance - it ricocheted. 


At least one ball is home to a fuchsia kingdom dedicated to eternal love. 


Each has its own dress code, certainly.
