Moebius Landing Strip at Ltd Los Angeles

June 10, 2013

I’m one of nine artists invited by Julia Scher to participate in her “Welcome Aliens” show, part of a larger exhibition titled A Short History of Cologne with Frances Scholz and Mark von Schlegell now on view at Ltd Los Angeles. Each of the invited artists contributed an ‘alien landing pad’ of their own concept and design alongside Julia’s musings on potential encounters with extraterrestrial life.

My piece, titled Moebius Landing Strip, welcomes aliens with an endless arrival to Earth. On touching down, alien craft proceed to loop in eternity, echoing the infinite dimensions of the cosmos from where they came, and where we reside. The object is constructed of paper, graphite, and glue.

The other landing pad artists, who include Julia’s students at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne, are Roman Hahlbrock, Jeff Cook, Karin Lingnau, Christian Sievers, Vanja Smiljanic, Amir Sorek, David Hahlbrock, and Heiko Diekmeier. The exhibition is up till July 3 at Ltd LA, 7561 W. Sunset Blvd #103, Los Angeles CA 90046 | 323.378.6842
