Instagrammer @thepaulrudolph captioned this close-up of Alyson Shotz’s Allusion of Gravity with a Herman Melville quote: “We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”

Alyson Shotz’s Allusion of Gravity, on view in Intersections@5, has been captivating audiences and taking over our Instagram feed. For this month’s ArtGrams, we’re highlighting a few of the most creative shots of this mesmerizing piece.
