Featured Artists & Sculptures

Martin Taylor/Chromaforms - "Seed of Dreams"

Seed of Dreams is a 13' tall sculpture of a human head, eyes closed, in a deep trance or dream state. Geometric perforations resonate outward from the forehead, emitting light from an internal source by night and reflecting the golden interior by day.

OGE Group - "Jellies of the Sky"

Mesmerizing, colorful and gentle. Jellies of the Sky shines a light on climate change, the disentanglement from nature, the crave for new technological bodies and the ever pushing for new habitats.

Luciana Abait - "AGUA"

Agua is a multichannel video artwork of a waterfall cascade. Often displayed large scale, and at times on the exterior of a building, the water pours down the surface offering a moment of delight, contemplation and joy. It represents cleansing, rebirth and new life with the hope that it can bring renewed awareness that will transform into actions to alleviate climate change and water preservation.

NOEMI PRUD'HOMME - Jewellery's Voices

Jewellery's Voices is an artwork about the beauty of ornaments. Ornaments progressively recover the facade, changing the aspect of the architecture into a colorful jewel. Patterns sing, evolve and blend together, giving birth to new shapes, over and over again, revealing infinite details everywhere. This artwork gives place to a luxurious imaginary world to be contemplated.
