New York City Ballet has chosen Brooklyn based artist Dustin Yellin to fill in the central hall as part of this year’s installation series.

Numen For Use: “Prototype of a self supporting inhabitable social sculpture.

The installation is based on production system of large geometric inflated objects. Since the physical behavior of fluids tend to make all inflates spherical, thin parallel ropes are tied on opposite sides of the volume, keeping them parallel to one another. Filigree interiors of this technically invented system are never exposed to public.

When the volume deflates, the ropes get loose and lay on the ground enabling compression of Read the rest

Several tons of black peppercorns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chili and coriander were rigged to explode in perfect sync with a bespoke musical composition. Each explosion represents an individual piano note or chord, which when filmed at high speed, creates a surreal three dimensional soundscape.

This amazing new sound/sculpture installation was a jury recommended work for the 14th Japan Media Arts Festival. The work creates a field of exploding fog clouds through the strategical use of music speakers to push them out. The possibilities of this technology seem infinite and they really remind us of the waterfall graphic print technology that has been around for some time now.

In research of digital information the installation ‘for those who see’ shows the beauty of the Read the rest

Mexican-American artist Adrian Esparza has taken the ubiquitous South and Central American tradition of recycling to a completely new level. Through a carefully placed field of nail pins on the walls of the Perez Art Museum, the artist has unraveled a traditional Mexican serape blanket to create a fabric mural with unique three-dimensional qualities. Suggestively called “Wake and Wonder”, the installation is considered by its author a self-portrait and explores the life of the artist, raised in and strongly … Read the rest
