Pinar Yoldas is a designer, artist, architect, and organic chemistry enthusiast. Her work is a reflection of her interests in neuroscience, evolution, gender studies and science fiction. In her work she explores new materials and new production tools in order to blend conventional media with digital media. I remember seeing these sculpture/organisms (often resembling the female anatomy) at the UCLA Design | Media Arts (both of our alma maters) 2nd Year grad show Exit Strategies. I was significantly and equal parts titillated and fascinated at these creatures, seemingly inanimate yet surreal-y possessing life like qualities. We’re also throwing a fundraiser party for her injuries and medical bills from multiple biking related accidents tonight in Echo Park (come come!). Check out the flyer after the jump!
Pinar’s piece in the show was titled FABULA and contained 17 glass petri dishes, which were at the beginning of this post. There were also kinetic sculptures that caged 6 specimens in the most elegant way. Materials included 6 glass containers, air pumps, various tubings & fittings, a servo motor, latex, polymer clay, LED lights, chemicals.
And now the details of her party! You can see me & the veejay group Collabo I’m performing in, wee!
