Media-driven sculptural installation for the Torrance Art Museum - 2018
Each of the suspended life-sized figures is drawn from a news-based persona: Businessman, Gunman, Mother, Alien, Illegal, Angel - activated by luminous media signals that travel from their smartphone through their body. High and low-tech elements are juxtaposed throughout the installation: advanced electronics and synthetic materials are integrated with coastal flotsam and jetsam and sticks and stones. 'Cloud Nine' integrates custom electronics and experimental artistic processes to create a vivid portrait of 21st century hyperculture.
Computer, LEDs, electronics, sound system, polycarbonate, paint, found materials. Dimensions variable.
