    Award-winning filmmakers Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine) document the SMMoA exhibition "Elias Sime: Eye of the Needle, Eye of the Heart." Using yarn, plastics, tattered fabric, buttons, used plastic, and bottle tops, each of the collages and stitched canvases Elias Sime creates for "Elias Sime: Eye of the Needle, Eye of the Heart" represent a complete essay about the current state of his surroundings. Sime’s three-dimensional sculptures are made with traditional organic Ethiopian building materials such as mud and straw, as well as wood, metal, and other found objects, gathered in part by neighborhood children. A highlight of the exhibition is a series of striking thrones made of leather, wood, mud and straw, which will be integrated into conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen’s final Los Angeles Philharmonic concerts staged by Sellars in mid-April. 2009.
