These are the first 4 viruses that are part of the Gift Horse project for the upcoming 01SJ Biennial, built originally as 3D models and then translated into paper sculptures. We are making 12 in total and stuffing hundreds of them inside the 13-foot high Trojan Horse.
We have been busy working on the internal structure and final models in Sketchup. The skeleton proved to be an advanced wood project since the exterior printed digital panels (see model above) will be exactly fitted to make it look like giant-sized 3D model of a horse.
The Eyebeam Roadshow will be participating in the 2010 01SJ Biennial in San Jose, September 4-19, 2010. Under this year's theme, Build Your Own World, the biennial will present hundreds of artworks, performances, events, and artist talks, which not only imagine the future of the world, but begin to build it.
The Eyebeam Roadshow will be included in the exhibition, Out of the Garage Into the World, in which independent artists, designers, architects, engineers, programmers, and corporate and academic research programs will publicly work in San Jose’s 80,000 square foot “South Hall” to create projects for exhibition, performance, provocation, and interaction.
