“Eye Candy” is a site specific installation for the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles. The work explores the cultural and phenomenological potential of synthetic surface finishes at architectural scale, and is a deliberate flirtation with the contemporary attraction to the glossy, the playful, the fictional and the pop. The unique iconography of this installation puts forth a clear statement that architectural material finishes have the communicative potential to enter into the imaginary realm of our “eye-candy” culture, exploiting our most superficial of obsessions including desire, age, gender, media, consumption, and delight.
“Eye Candy” runs through the 8th of March, 2013.
