  • Sleeper, 2017
    Sculptural media installation commissioned by the Beall Center for Art and Technology at UC Irvine, for the exhibition 'Masculine <-> Feminine.'
    'Sleeper' plays on the endless cycle of information that fuels our current political state of affairs. The electronics-driven sculptural fountain is constructed from translucent castings of the artist's body, pieced together in the manner of an Exquisite Corpse. Sleeper hangs upside down, eyes closed, while receiving social and mass media chatter. Custom-built technology transforms digital signals into sound and light via computerized LEDs. The resulting babble-based system animates and illuminates the male form in a perpetual loop of self-affirmation.
    10.5 x 10.5 x 4 feet - computer, LEDs, mixed electronics, polycarbonates, aluminum, steel, water pump
