If you thought an autonomous swarm of 300 illuminated drones imitating a flock of birds above the ocean in Miami Beach was unusual, get this: There’s a “12-foot orgasm” installation exploding on a wall of the Nautilus South Beach.

“I Can Feel” was created by emotional autobiographist and artist Suzy Kellems Dominik, who installed the neon light sculpture over the weekend in the hotel’s lobby, where it will remain on display through Art Week’s completion on Sunday.

“It is literally as obvious as it seems: It is an orgasm,” Dominik says. “It’s truly the reclamation of my physical and emotional independence. I think it’s important that we as people know our bodies, know how they feel, know how we feel, how they interrelate with our emotions.

“In a very short amount of time I want to be able to actually change someone’s life in a way that they can think about themselves or others around them.”

This one’s for the girls. @suzykellemsdominik brings her “I Can Feel” piece to the lobby for #ArtBasel. #miami #SIXTYbeach
