Google Doodle and a Japanese artist Ruth Asawa

What fascinates me about Google doodles is how they shed light on important events around us, in a fun and artistic way for everyone to enjoy. Most doodles correspond to significant world events, movements, or influential people in history. Today’s theme is the artwork of Ruth Asawa.

Ruth Asawa was a Japanese American citizen who lived in internment camps in the USA. Asawa is most famous for using wire mesh to create hanging artwork. My favorite artwork by Asawa is the geometrical prints she produced, which look like enlarged depictions of nature’s building blocks. Her work was featured in the Pulitzer Arts Foundation, which included some eighty works, comprising nearly sixty sculptures as well as twenty drawings and collages.
