artist in residency
During the month of October 2018 I curated the Artist In Residency program at The Ace Hotel in New York, to include artists from the Refinery29 Design Team. This meant that every weekend, two of our designers spend a night at The Ace to create an exceptional piece of art.
During the last weekend, Elliot Salazar and myself, wanted to create an experience, not just art. We blew over 4000 yellow balloons, brought in a few friends and created an interactive piece called UNTITLED ROOM 11.
Inspired by three of the most influential living artist of our time — Martin Creed, Yayoi Kusama and James Turrell — UNTITLED ROOM 11 is an homage to their art. From the balloons completely covering the floor, to the Kusama-like dots on the wall and the lights in the bathroom. The room became the art itself.
