Yin Ju Chen - Liquidation Maps.  "By combining sacred geometry, alchemical symbols and mandalas with horary astrology – the creation of horoscopes for the exact time of a major incident or occurrence – Chen reinterprets important historical events through a series of intricate, map-like drawings, continuing her investigation of the concept of power and its role and function in society."

A really awkward and uninviting space (you feel like you're walking through someone's expensive office).
