Little Tokyo Design Week
Los Angeles, CA
opening: July 14th, 2011
duration: July 14th – July 17th, 2011
ARTCUBE contains a novel interactive sculpture comprising photographs of the artistic processes and techniques captured by Brandon Shigeta. Stacked into random arrays forming a single cubic massing the sculpture includes hidden signed cards and custom artwork on the surface of the postcards by artists. Perhaps qualifying the exhibit as the heaviest photographic exhibit ever, the sculpture consists of approximately 65,000 postcards of approximately 80 various images to be removed by visitors as souvenirs. The sculpture provides visitors with participatory spatial and tactile experiences in which they remove their favorite images to change the overall form of the mass to reveal new images below. A ceiling mounted camera will record a time-lapse image stream of the changing topography of the top of the sculptural surface over the course of the show.
ARTCUBE is a concentrated agglomeration of images that form narratives of artistic processes, assemblages and details like brush strokes. Those images also reveal their specific, sometimes even illegal, locations in city space and time. Ephemeral at their origin these artistic acts will be further dissolved by ARTCUBE‘s visitors into a flow of the fast paced and energetic cycles of aesthetic metropolitan consumption and production. They will become postcards from the present to a wonderfully fictional future city.
Brandon Shigeta is a Los Angeles based designer and design photographer. On completing his graduate studies in architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design Brandon won the prestigious Rotch Travelling Scholarship, which allowed him to visit many countries throughout Asia to document temporary metropolitan phenomena. His photographs were soon picked up by renowned fashion blog HYPEBEAST. Having worked in cutting edge design offices in Atlanta, Seoul and Tokyo Brandon brings a vibrant contemporary sensibility to his graphic design and photography. The art blog Arrested Motion regularly features his singular travel imagery and event coverage. You may see numerous examples of Brandon’s work on his travel blog http://brandonshigeta.com/blog/.
