Seven on Seven pairs seven leading artists with seven game-changing technologists in teams of two, and challenges them to develop something new --be it an application, social media, artwork, product, or whatever they imagine-- over the course of a single day.
Marc Andre Robinson
Marc Andre Robinson works in sculpture, drawing, video and interactive public projects that revolve around a psychology of historical, cultural and familial belonging. Playing with the dialogue between art and artifact, he collects discarded furniture and transforms it into sculptural assemblages with complex and delicately balanced symbols. Robinson’s drawings are often marked by meticulous patterning and repetition, while his public projects have involved creating catalysts for communion with history.
