Spring Break Art Show
SPRING/BREAK ART SHOW, Stranger Comes to Town, "Self on the Shelf" Christine Miele, Curator- An immersive Video Art Installation by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger. Interactivity by Nicola Carpeggiani. Experiential branding by Laura Valenzuela. Product design by Amy Pilkington. Chris is curating a show entitled "Self on the the Shelf" at this year's SPRING/BREAK Art Show. The seventh annual fair, which is an internationally recognized exhibition platform using underused, atypical and historic New York City exhibition spaces to activate and challenge the traditional cultural landscape of the art market and takes place each year during Armory Arts Week. Through immersive interactive projection mapping, video art, illustration and animation, Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger, in collaboration with interactivity designer Nicola Carpeggiani, will create a child’s bedroom and bring it to life as it responds to a series of clues or hints, which will be given to visitors as they enter the room. Extracted from a 2012 journal entry about Chris' son and his relationship with James, his Elf on the Shelf, the concept of this stranger from the North Pole was born. The dramatic visual effects will transform the room as the viewer explores feelings, emotions and limits between reality and fantasy.
