 Lens Therapy was coordinated by Outer Space: an art series that is nowhere and everywhere. Artists are selected to create a temporary installation for a place significant to them. Once the piece is installed, they have an opening for the show, lasting between three and five hours, then the piece is removed, giving the space back to what it was before we arrived. Sometimes it is cold and monsooning, sometimes it is dry and windless. Every time it feels new, every time it feels significant.    http://outerspace.fyi/
