In conjunction with the exhibition "Out of Hand: Materializing the Post Digital," the NYC DOT Urban Art Program and the Museum of Arts and Style present Michael Rees’ sculpture "Converge: Ghraib Bag" in the pedestrian plaza on Broadway in between 58th Street and Columbus Circle. The 17 foot sculpture was manufactured from a laptop file utilizing Computer Numerical Manage (CNC) machines and application from one particular frame in an animation. A video element, which depicts two sculptures interacting with a single yet another, is accessible via a QR Tag reader free of charge app.
"Out of Hand: Materializing the Post Digital," explores the 21st-century phenomenon of extraordinary creativity engendered by advanced methods of personal computer-assisted production known as digital fabrication. Organized by the Museum of Arts and Style, the timely exhibition is the very first to examine this interdisciplinary trend by way of pioneering performs by an international cast of established artists, architects and designers.
