Now, something new has just opened in our area to give them a fighting chance. Babies born withdrawing from opiates, due to drugs circulating in their systems from mom, can be a challenge. The baby may need to stay in the hospital for a week, but the mother goes home. The separation can be a problem in this time important to bonding.
Considering this location and context, the installation focuses on the presence and activity of the ground plane.
The project explores the relationship of the analog artifact and the digitally developed composition. Comprised of a system of handmade terracotta tiles - a ubiquitous material in Southern California homes - the floor of the gallery breaks away from the planar to compose a flowing and colorful interior landscape that guests can navigate through on foot.
The bulging areas of this landscape are created by gradually elevating the tiles on transparent acrylic supports. Heightened by vibrantly colorful lighting, the contrast of the analog tiles and digital surface creates a compelling experience that rivals the lure of the historic sidewalk beyond the gallery.
Photos by Justin Harris. To stand in contrast to the high-fashion clothing of the boutique, cheap everyday industrial materials - zip ties and electrical lamp cord - were aggregated to create a floating volume that nestles below an existing soffit.
The design explores the contrast between industry and elegance through material sensibility, form, and visual effect. The cloud-like volume is created by a double-sided surface composed of overzip ties.
The exterior surface of the volume is an aggregation of longer, wider white zip ties while the interior is comprised of shorter and finer colored zip ties. The resulting bulging form offers ever-changing glimpses of blurred yet vivid color combinations as the zip ties layer on top of one another in the predominantly black and white store interior.
By considering such qualities as gumminess, softness, color, translucency, and texture the project begins to curate a stimulating experience for children, parents and even the larger urban community.
Formally and programmatically the building considers the idea of gumminess as a way to create spaces and blur the distinction between types. This allows us to reconsider the role of the wall and use ETFE panels to provide a compelling museum experience.
Visualization by our good friends at nephew.
In the past, these structure were used to enhance the scenery with visual richness, falsely representing architectural elements to complete or compliment the natural landscape. Modern society privileges consumer aesthetics and immediate sentimental delight, and therefore gravitates toward decorative imitation and kitsch sensibilities.
We are collectively enamored with small, ornamental, visually compelling, useless objects - ostensibly, knickknacks. The knickknack is used to decorate and complete our most common contemporary landscape, the interior domestic realm of the everyday American home.
Like the folly of the past, the knickknack is whimsical, delightful, and resembles something familiar and likable but false and inaccurate. They are pointless, romantic, and purely for visual satisfaction. While Follies exists as larger scale architectural objects, they are in many ways proto-knickknack.
Embracing this quality of the folly, Little Joy shifts the idea from folly as architectural object to folly as architectural knickknack and leverages the potentials latent in the knickknack by appropriating their design techniques.
Our proposal provides an experience that venerates the past and highlights the modern city and contemporary aesthetic.
The extraordinary variety of home shrines, as well as the variety of objects and materials that make them up, narrates a story of relationships and beliefs unique to each creator.
The artistic production of the shrine tends to be read as kitsch, but it is based on a sincere decoration strategy in which display and adornment have no limit, for it is a sign of the devotion of the family.
In addition to questions of quantity the belief that the more objects employed, the stronger the power of devotion and visual intensity achieving a huge visual payoff from an inexpensive kitsch sensibilityhome shrines describe an active relationship between ornamentation, object-hood and the architectural interior.
The interior architectural space of the shrine becomes defined not by the envelope containing it, but rather, by the collection and accumulation of decorated objects therein. Not unlike the excessively adorned interiors of Baroque, Rococo, and Art Nouveau religious spaces, home shrines utilize accretive ornamentation for more than just mere decoration — it is employed for emotional and spiritual power and devotion.
Made with traditional candle-making techniques, hundreds of handmade wax candles are suspended on embedded cotton wicks, accumulating to create a semi-enclosed chromaphilic space. While the overhead candles are geometrically simple and clean, the candles closer to the ground are increasingly articulated with a grotesque rustication captured during the transformation of the material from its liquid state to its solid state.
This rustication technique partners with a gradient of increasing color saturation to engage with the traditional shrine organization that establishes a narrative describing the change between heaven and earth.Ronald Acuna, considered one of baseball's top prospects, arrived to spring training four days ahead of schedule with one goal in mind: a spot on the Braves' opening day roster.
