Chiharu Shiota’s “The Key In The Hand.”

Currently on display at the 2015 Venice Art Biennale in Venice, Italy until November 22nd, 2015 is artist Chiharu Shiota’s gorgeous installation art piece, “The Key in the Hand,” that incorporates over 50,000 keys strung about by bright red string over ominous and mythical looking boats.

The 50,000 keys were collected from participants around the world in a way to preserve and display their individual memories by the artist.  As each key is connected by the thousands of strings the art piece becomes a metaphor for a collective consciousness and the idea that we are all in this together.

Via Colossal.
