For Paul Villinski, on the other hand, MIA is the appropriate home for his "Air Chair," fantastic flying wheelchair machine made to uplift spirit and interest as it hangs above the visitors' heads. He, also, draws the surprised viewer towards discovery though this embodiment of unlikely possibility. Indeed, 'surprise' plays an important role in the task of inspiring the public. In an understated but powerful way, Ximena Labra's "For Those Who Go" at DEN, is a collection of literary excerpts planted unobtrusively right in front of you on windows, on conveyors, on arches, on walls. Though easily overlooked, once seen they percolate and affect a lasting impression.
