“Gravity’s Migraine” At The Standard | Hollywood

Posted in architecture, art by aldorf on January 12, 2012

Tim Biskup and his most recent installation titled Gravity’s Migraine. The see through cube which sits behind the hotel’s reception desk featured a woman inside the space which brings to the forefront issues of voyeurism and  the lack of privacy.  The core idea behind these installations is how objects can take on an entirely new shape by simply changing their visual perspective. When looking simply at the cube, it’s interesting to note how the lines on the cube’s glass create this fractal look which merge with the layers of blue and white patterns painted within the transparent box; thus, creating new shapes that duplicate Biskup’s style in a three dimensional landscape.
