Moss and Marcus
If my friend Marcus had perhaps given me more that a day's notice I might have been able to make the opening at Moss called Butch Craft. Moss is amazing at finding the most innovative designers - they have their finger on the pulse... or maybe they actually create the pulse...
I love this piece by Marcus Tremonto; his work is clever and witty and super fun. Photos never do his work justice, so I am getting myself over to the store in SoHo soon to check this out and all the other amazing pieces in the show.
Here is a description of this piece from the Moss website...
"Continuing the use of light as a medium to express form, this new works by Marcus Tremonto, commissioned exclusively for Moss, further pushes the artist's exploration of illusion through the manipulation of two and three-dimensional imagery. The work is highly graphic and illustration-based, drawing inspiration from French Pop comics of the 1960's, which so well delineated what was necessary to translate the image: the suggestion of a solid, three-dimensional form through a simple line gesture. By also manipulating and exaggerating size and form, the work forces the viewer to re-examine, question and consider the surroundings in which it exists, much like a single panel in a comic.
These lights employ Electroluminescent paper, which consists of an organic material that emit photons (light) when excited by an electric current, sandwiched between two thin layers of plastic. This method of producing light is distinct from standard incandescent lights in that there is no emission of heat. Electroluminescence was first developed in 1960 for use in automotive instrument panel backlighting."
