"John Seefeldt: Fragments of Reconstruction and Longing" and "Daniel Lievens: Twos. Pairs of letters and pairs of colors" will be on display from Thursday, Feb. 18, through Thursday, March 25, at the Collins C. Diboll Gallery and Visual Arts Center at the J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library, 6363 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, La.
The exhibits will be unveiled at an art reception that runs from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 18. The event is free and open to the public.
John Seefeldt's Fragments of Reconstruction and Longing is made of wood, fabric, 3D printed components, custom electronics, custom software, interactive projection and sound.
The installation attempts to examine the way in which we remember and reconstruct our past experiences. The space is divided into two sections. One section is dedicated to longing which presents photographs and archival imagery within a romanticized 3D modeled environment. The second space is dedicated to reconstruction which attempts to reconstruct and investigate these memories in a more analytical format.
The installation was built using a modular system that was designed to support the spacial investigation of conceptual ideas. The main materials used are affordable and widely available. The more complex, custom components were designed to be produced using consumer level 3D printers and have been published under the Creative Commons license allowing them to be freely reproduced and modified.
The Collins C. Diboll Art Gallery is open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays from Noon to 6 p.m.
