INTERFACE AND SOURCE CODE AT OUT OF SIGHT
INTERFACE is a next-generation light and space sculpture derived from the molecular shape of silicon. Floating on a MacBook Pro-inspired shipping pallet and encased in a massive hard drive from a lost Kubrick film, this work references both the occult dawn of our digital ecosystem and tech-noir future. Its geometric form and RGB spectrum invoke an astral, high-speed connection across our physical, digital, and spiritual states of existence.
SOURCE CODE is a multi-part series composed of transparent vacuum-sealed glass tubes containing helium, neon, argon, krypton, and xenon gasses under a high-power electric current. Every one of these elements has their unique property of illumination and form the building blocks of our entire digital ecosystem, from micro chip production to cancer research. Each separate radiating shape is attached to a custom-made aluminum frame that references from left to right: focus, energy, union, and transcendence.
INTERFACE (neon, argon, glass, nickel, aluminum, silicon, two transformers, nylon, wood, enamel paint — 2015) and SOURCE CODE (helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, glass, copper, aluminum, silicon, eight transformers — 2015-present) are currently on exhibition in two separate locations at Out of Sight, a Pacific Northwest survey of contemporary art, from August 3-27.
