Anish Kapoor is best known for works of huge scale. If you want to boost an area's economy, you'd do well to commission the artist because people flock to withness the sheer size of his installations. Some of his best work has been constructed out of reflective materials. When these mirrored forms are the size of a house, they deliver a real sense of limitlessness.
With his new piece, Descension, similar existential pangs are felt but they're delivered in a different manner. The sunken whirlpool sits in Aspinwall House, Kerala, India, perpetually spinning into perceived nothingness. You know you could jump in, but a small part of you thinks you wouldn't survive.
