Present Box is a series of temporary exhibitions that invite artists to transform BMoCA’s lobby and front entrance into innovative installations, performances, and events that last two weeks.
Exhibiting artist Bruce Price teams up with mechanical engineer students Sam Brown & Galen Melchert for this edition of Present Box.
Curatorial Accessories & TheFancyReal are excited to present research material related to a public art project on the campus of the University of Colorado/Boulder titled SpaceTime Underpass (STU). Artist Bruce Price and mechanical engineer students Sam Brown & Galen Melchert have been mining NASA images of solar bodies for ornamental motifs to be cast in concrete.
STU is located at the asteroid belt between Mars & Jupiter in an existing scale model of the solar system that traverses the campus from the Planetarium. Surface details of the asteroid Vesta provide a rich source of images taken by the Dawn spacecraft as it orbited the body. On display will be 3D prints, concrete tiles, digital production images, and ornamental program development toward installation of the project in late 2018.
Utilizing research artifacts, produced as part of designing of a public art work, the three iterations in the Present Box are organized around a three axis’s conceptual territory produced by bring geology, digital media, and conviviality together.
