Retro Maven

Michelle Meyer's avatar Michelle Meyer

“Retro Maven” is a free standing sculpture created to play off of its environment. Each material choice creates a multitude of experience opportunities for viewers. Beginning with the hair the Moire Effect will be employed, creating and optical illusion of movement and pattern morphing. The rectangle area that designates the eyes is outfitted with a slightly angled upward, mirrored surface. This component gives the ability of the piece to reflect its surroundings, each moment creating a new view for the observer as well as the sculpture. Life observing Art, as Art observes Life. The skin treatment utilizes the science of retro-reflection, commonly found in street signs. This material will give viewers a unique view of the piece depending on their observation point. The goal of this piece is to inspire curiosity and to prompt people to take in their surroundings.
