Considering today's political circus, de Nieves’s artful way of flipping the narrative via a medium as joyful as a carousel is both ambitious and wondrously transcendent. When I Look in to Your Eyes I See the Sun is a fully functioning carousel (though intended for viewing only) that will be displayed at the Faena Hotel in Miami Beach from December 5 to 10. After that, it will travel around the world with Bulgari.
