Midterm Response: Oliver Herring

I particularly liked the work of German artist, Oliver Herring. I especially like is sculpture of Gloria  (2004). He asked his friends to pose for him and give the sculptures the title of their first names. "Among his early works were his woven sculptures and performance pieces in which he knitted Mylar, a transparent and reflective material, into human figures, clothing, and furniture" (art:21). 

When I first saw this image in the textbook, I didn't realize it was actually a sculpture. It first caught my eye because I couldn't tell what it was made of/with.
