28,000 Flowers @ Massachusetts Mental Health Center by Anna Schuleit, circa 2003

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 14, 2012
We just read a wonderful interview with Anna Schuleit, who in 2003 created Bloom, an installation in the Massachusetts Mental Health Center that involved 28,000 flowers. Schuleit, when commissioned to work within a mental health center nearly 100 years old and slated for demolition, notes "I was hoping to create a work that would bring aspects of play into the seriousness of the institution, an element of the absurd."

An Interview with Ela Boyd

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Ela Boyd creates immersive installations that fragment and decentralize our understanding of space, time, and the self in reference to the subjective qualities of perception. Her installations have been on view at various spaces including the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego alongside the Pacific Standard Time exhibition Phenomenal. By choreographing the viewer’s experience, the installations involve the viewer in the space, reordering their understanding of common phenomena that are easily overlooked.

Pixel Installation by Jonas Vorwerk and Yoren Schriever

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 31, 2011
Jonas Vorwerk and Yoren Schriever took the concept of the simple pixel, something you see everywhere, phone, camera, computer, and turned it into an interactive installation.
