In the first room of Ei Arakawa's exhibition at Overduin & Kite, all the art is on the ceiling. Three faceless cloth figures wearing perfectly clean, brand-new shoes but hodge-podge outfits hang from three ceiling fans. Their arms, legs and heads are attached to the fan propellers but the clothing on their torsos hangs free. So the buttoned-down blue jacket of the figure closest to the door sometimes balloons out, making her look pregnant. One of them starts spinning, the other catches wind and start spinning, too. So sometimes they're all whipping around fast enough to makes your head spin, or sometimes one's slowed down to a crawl. 6693 Sunset Blvd., Hlywd.; through Oct. 22.
