Thousands of red buttons make up this installation, Dreaming for Joy, by artist Ran Hwang. I wish I could see this installation in person. I can only imagine the joy I would feel when realizing what the bird was actually made of. I love thinking about the logistics and problem solving behind art. Like where the heck do you source a million red buttons from? And what were the steps to make a sketch into reality?
