  [dNASAb]’s most recent body of work has evolved in exciting new directions. These dynamic new works are informed via the intense observation of the living marine reef ecosystem. The artist maintains a full blown reef ecosystem in his studio in which he nurtures and propagates dozens of species of living corals, as well as the subsequent ecosystem needed for them to thrive, fish, invertebrates and bacteria. The artist refers to the reef aquarium as the “studio tank”, and as the name suggests it is a place of research into developing living sculpture. [dNASAb] conducts research utilizing new materials, species integration and optical systems in an effort to re-contextualize the reef environment.

  The underwater world has always been a source of inspiration for the artist but it’s this daily interaction with this pristine system that informs the new works in this series. The tank requires extreme measures to maintain suitable water chemistry and a sterile environment for the species to thrive, the most important step in this process is intense observation. Utilizing the same level of observation the artist has turned his discerning eye to the natural environments that are the foundations for a healthy reef. Sadly, the same standard of cleanliness does not exist in real life. What the artist has found on the beaches, in the Ocean’s, and strewn through the mangrove nurseries is horrifyingly inspirational.

  “Like an Ocean gyre, a vortex of artifacts of a consumption based contemporary society such as; plastic bottles and bags, fishing nets, and helium balloons become ensnarled with driftwood, dead coral, and seaweed creating a grotesques amalgamation of disparate materials which remarkably can still harbor life and be a sculptural framework for life to grow. I aim to develop work that embodies this contemporary conundrum.”

“Sculpting Life, A re-contextualization of the living marine reef ecosystem” 2014
Thermal formed plastics,24 hand cast archival images, 60 living corals, cast clear plastic 3d  fiber optic nodes,270 led's,acrylic, fiber optics,reclaimed/recycled plastics, aquatic resin, live rock, and a full marine ecosystem.


The artist [dNASAb] uses mixed media to evoke the forms, textures, and colors of the living coral reef, as well as the biodiversity of ocean life. A seasoned scuba diver, the artist seeks to share his experience of the underwater world’s perception changing power.


“The living coral reef ecosystem only covers about 1% of the ocean,” writes the artist, “but provides a full 25% of the oceans’ biodiversity. I am awed by the extreme degree of specialization these species have developed throughout their evolution. ”

[dNASAb] reproduces the shifting organic growth of the reef by allowing living invertebrates to fasten to the work, making the sculpture part of the living coral it seeks to mimic. In this way the sculpture- like the reef and its inhabitants-transforms over time. With its ability to create, regenerate, and evolve in real-time, [dNASAb]’s work reflects the corporate culture on the other side of the aquarium glass.

Employing plastics, LEDs, fiber optics, and other media, [dNASAb]’s  Aquascaping Project makes the connection between the rich biodiversity of the reef and the accelerating  social and cultural evolution of the world we inhabit on land.


*No aquatic life was harmed by sculpture installation or presence in the tank*

[dNASAb] exhibits works in "The Silver Shore" at GRAHAM gallery (est.1857) NYC- July 11th, 2013 6-8 pm.

"Dataclysmic 4", 2011. 22" LED screen, Digital Media Player, LEDs, steel, silicon, plastic, fiber optics, 720P HD video. dimensions variable. Gallery installation.

NEW YORK - On Thursday, July 11th from 6 - 8PM, GRAHAM will host an opening reception for its summer exhibition, The Silver Shore

 Graham's contemporary program began with American realism and over the years has shifted toward abstraction. The Silver Shore is a thematically curated exhibition that pays homage to the core of our contemporary program while integrating the diverse approaches and new technologies that can be found in contemporary art today.

Among the participants are artists who have a history and association with GRAHAM, artists established on the Lower East Side, and emerging artists. From the passionate realism of Diane Andrews Hall's wave paintings to the conceptual abstraction of John Zinsser's snaking rivulets of flat paint, the exhibition as a whole has the lightness and playfulness of a summer retreat. A sound installation using live data feeds to explore the tides by Adam Bach and Ellery Royston, a floating videoscape by [dNASAb], an interactive painting on digital canvas by globHammer, boundary pushing paintings by Ryan Michael Ford and Adam Parker Smith, and elegant sculptures by Afruz Amighi and Carolyn Salas are some of the diverse methods of expression brought to bear on a single theme.

Participating artists:
Afruz Amighi, Mary Armstrong, Adam Bach, Brent Birnbaum, [dNASAb], Stoney Conley, Ryan Michael Ford, globHammer, Diane Andrews Hall, Stephen Hannock, Jim Lee, Shelly Malkin, Mary McDonnell, Bruce Monteith, Andy Moses, Anna Poor, Ellery Royston, Carolyn Salas, Eric Shaw, Adam Parker Smith, Kimber Smith, Daniel John Weiner, John Zinsser

Opening reception: June 5, 2013, 6-8 pm

 [dNASAb] exhibits 2 new video sculptures in [Shoot ] at Lesley Heller Workspace gallery..

 [dNASAb] creates video sculptures that are based on the aesthetics created in the destruction of the screen. He begins by purchasing a brand new screen. Takes it out of the box and breaks it. During each step of the process of breaking it he photographs, in High Definition stills, the effects. He then layers those HD stills in myriads of layers in After Effects. The resulting videos “conceptually render the brand new screens; that these films are displayed on; broken, glitch-y and useless”. He then samples the best stills of the new HD video, and extrudes them into a third dimension via archival printed plastics. He juxtaposes the plastic images with clusters of lcd screens, fiber optics, LED’s, glass, mirrors, crystals and plastics on the surface of the largest screen to create the “Screenscaping” and “Aesthetics of Decay” video sculptures.

ART21 writes a review of "Colliding Complexities" show


ART21 + Nettrice Gaskins report on a group exhibition highlighting the complex intersections between art, science and technology.

http://blog.art21.org/2012/10/02/colliding-complexities_extreme-feats-of-the-new-york_new-aesthetic/#more-71149
 
Bricolage is a French word, with no direct equivalent in English. It connotes the process of finding out how to make things work, not from standard rules or methods but from messing around with whatever materials are on hand. This term suggests a sense of improvisation and tinkering that transforms the context and meaning of these objects, such as in works created by Sarah Sze. This is an important concept in contemporary art production and entrepreneurship. Michael Rush notes postmodern aesthetics discourse regarding how recent social-economic changes produce particular structures of feeling or cultural logics that are reflected in new art forms. Postmodernism also implies that we’ve run out of things to say. I think that we need to cast a much broader net to capture the spirit of the moment we’re in now; and expand definitions to capture innovative ideas such as the free use of digital images, objects and information. Holland Wilde writes that a bricoleur produces a “pieced-together set of representations that is fitted to the specifics of a complex situation…(it) is pragmatic, strategic and self-reflexive.” This blog post highlights artists and works as part of evolving creative practices that explore the spatial, social and cultural (techno­vernacular) dimensions of the material and virtual in a variety of ways. more…..

"Anonymous vs. Siri _Anonymous Message to the People, Battle Over Anonymity" by [dNASAb]

"Anonymous vs. Siri _Anonymous Message to the People, Battle Over Anonymity" by [dNASAb]



Anonymous has carefully crafted an aesthetic that surrounds their message. I have absorbed the aesthetic and manipulated it. In an attempt to enhance their aesthetic I created several unique video sculptures to incorporate into the film. The film also incorporates video projection mapping, video optics, video sculptures embedded with infrared surveillance cameras, CCTV system, LCD screens, and L.E.D's. I envision the exhibition of this project as an immersive multi-channel video installation.

I am not a Hacktivist, but rather an artist. I believe the responsibility of great art is to raise more questions than answers. This video art series is an attempt to broaden the dialog surrounding the beliefs and methods of the group Anonymous; and the intersection of our own personal freedoms, private vs. public information, and the future of Neutrality on the Internet. This video was specifically uploaded and distributed via the internet on March 1st 2012, the exact day that Google launches its new Privacy policy, allowing them to harvest and sell more of your private data. Again, in an effort to raise questions surrounding how, why and to what extent is your personal data is being mined.

[dNASAb] "Aesthetics of Decay; Design for Dying Electronics #3" 2011



"Aesthetics of Decay; Design for Dying Electronics #3" 2011, 1080p HD Video, edition of 5 + 2AP
1 min. exerpt of large multi-channel video installation.
[dNASAb]/Frederieke Taylor Gallery


This HD Video comments on the lifespan of current consumer electronics, and the inevitability of their deaths. I engage in the destruction of screens in the studio, the broken screens and the inherent designs created by the organic nature of the cracks have been photographed, studied and have influenced the aesthetics of the video. By mapping video into the broken areas and juxtaposing multiple videos within the design, a glitching video has been created. In the action of playing this video on your iPad ,computer screen or HD tv screen, you are virtually rendering your own screen broken. The dichotomy of the ever newer screen playing HD content that turns your new screen into a dying screen highlights the inevitability of the death of your own hardware. While simultaneously revealing the beauty of the decay and death of electronics and questioning the lifespan of display screens. The video actually ends with the destruction of the screen.
