My artwork ‘Miami Dominoes’ is a site specific installation that aims at enhancing the concrete infrastructure of the underline metro rail near the University of Miami Metro Rail Station. For thousands of students, locals and visitors, the Rail Station is a critical gateway to access the university, their homes and the local business services, including shops, medical centers and much more. Unfortunately, the heavy concrete structure underneath the railway tracks is a real eye sore. My artwork ‘Miami Dominoes’ offers to transform the concrete pylons into a visually fun, playful and thought provoking installation that celebrates creativity through the method of “trompe l’oeil”. Turning the concrete pylons into a set of Dominos game pieces, the thematic behind ‘Miami Dominoes’ transcends all ages, all cultural and socio economic backgrounds. It will create an element of pride for the local neighborhood and will be enjoyed by the greater Miami community and visiting tourists.
This artwork was awarded The Ellies 2018 Creator Award.
My sculptural and site specific artworks stem from my interest in urban landscapes, specifically in the study of the relationship between order and chaos across urban developments. Forms, space and their opposites constitute the primary inspiration for my work. Both form and space are given shape and scale in my artworks and installations. Also, where my art works sit within their immediate surroundings is another crucial aspect of this form/space relationship. Just as internal space is created by voids in form, exterior space can be defined by changing the shape, mass / size, scale, proportion, rhythm, articulation, texture, color, and light of form as well.
