Monolith

Richard Piippo's avatar Richard Piippo Vote Code: 67111

A free standing, interactive slab of wood framed construction. Estimated dimensions of 7'hx4'wx1d' not including supportive base for stability. Surfacing will include professional automotive grade base color and clear coat media, with additives. End result of additives is a heat reactive surface, requiring viewer interactivity, producing a time based work. The resulting object will have interactive qualities and require viewer contact to reveal imagery hidden by the black surface. Expected viewer contact by hand or palm. The Monolith will contain many images including topics relating to world, political, cultural and societal issues. There will be an equal blend of uplifting, and disturbing imagery across the entire surface. The hope is that viewers approach with a sense of curiosity, as well as uncertainty, as to what lies hidden beneath the surface. To allow for the widest range of viewers, imagery will be age sensitive, with the least sensitive near the base of the Monolith and most sensitive near the top.
