Nouveau Nouvel: Mondrian as Muse

Inspired by Jean Nouvel’s architectural innovation, 100 11th Avenue, (art)n reimagines their own PHSCologram process by furthering the deconstruction of virtual subject matter with infusing that element into the physical three-dimensionality of the sculpture itself. Each side panel is segmented to come out at various levels of depth enhancing the viewers’ 3D experience to an elevated level. Along with it’s construction, Nouvel’s Mondian inspired subject matter is also brought to life through color and form, creating a cutting edge PHSCologram sculpture.

Aquatic Assemblage:

The Maritime Metropolis

 

A reconstructed vision featuring Chicago's stunning masterpieces of nautical influenced architecture. Within the triptych's panels, scale deconstructed views of Jeanne Gang's water waved Aqua Building, Sheldon Schlegman's sailing spurred Crain Communications Building (formerly the Smurfit-Stone), and Bertrand Goldberg's river run Marina Towers. Supporting each image stands a pedestal developed in relation to all three structures and their framework.

The Crain Communications Building was designed in 1983 by A. Epstein and Sons and was completed in 1984. The Marina City Complex and Marina Towers were designed in 1959 by Bertrand Goldberg and were completed in 1964. Aqua was designed in 2007 by a team led by Jeanne Gang of Gang Studio Architects and was completed in 2010.

Townhouse Revisited

 

Created for "Townhouse," an architectural competition sponsored by the Graham Foundation. Townhouse Revisited addresses issues of the body, public space, and touch in the architecture of virtual reality. The work was created in response to such questions as : if hard matter and gravity offer no impediment in virtual reality, what then will meeting, working and playing in spaces look like there?
