Dan Flavin

Untitled (to Barnett Newman) two
Dan Flavin was an American artist and pioneer of Minimalism, best known for his seminal installations of light fixtures. His illuminated sculptures offer a rigorous formal and conceptual investigation of space and light, wherein the artist arranged commercial fluorescent bulbs into differing geometric compositions. “I like art as thought better than art as work,” he once said. “I’ve always maintained this. It’s important to me that I don’t get my hands dirty. It’s not because I’m instinctively lazy. It’s a declaration: art is thought.”

Primarily working within abandoned office spaces, her process involves stripping the rooms down to their individual components, laying bare the layers found beneath the surfaces. She then re-assembles the room using materials found on-site, such as fluorescent tubes, paper towels, laminate, and tape, by adapting techniques of sculpture, painting and drawing.

Specter
El monolito naranja fluorescente de Sterling Ruby, SPECTRE, aparece como una aparición en el desierto. La brillante escultura geométrica crea una ilusión óptica discordante, que se asemeja a un compuesto o collage con Photoshop, como si algo se hubiera eliminado o borrado del paisaje. El bloque actúa como un cifrado o sustituto, imitando la forma que podría ser: un contenedor de envío, un búnker militar, un objeto no identificado, un hogar abandonado. La naranja fluorescente se usa tradicionalmente por seguridad, como advertencia. Aquí esa lógica se invierte: un objeto fantasmal, apartado del entorno natural, escondido a plena vista.
