Setting up with d[NASA]b

Yesterday we dropped in to Irvine Contemporary to help with the installation set up of d[NASA]b‘s show entitled¬†Dataklysmos, opening on Saturday April 30.

You wouldn’t believe the amounts of tubes, filaments, zip ties and wire liner that comes with this set up. d[NASA]b goes HAM on some really vibrant and organic looking video monitor/fibre glass/silicon installations. When the ambient music and video begins to kick in they really almost mimic natural creatures floating in space.

These pictures don’t really do these things justice, as the size and free-hanging nature really makes their placement and setting pop. They seem like large floating coral formations that are just radiating light, color and most cases, some sort of video.

The plastic nodes warp the video content underneath it.

There were also these photographic prints mounted on fiberglass, shot on a beach with one of the smaller sculptures floating with the tides. Low shutter speed shots in dead of night.

Yeah this is really seeing that intersection of digital information and organic lifeforms. Some really awesome work. Come check it out in person at the opening on Saturday. via Irvine Contemporary.
