Jorge Misium: "Skunk Works"
March 2 – April 3 (closed for Spring Break March 16 – 20).
This installation project is by professor of 3D Design and Sculpture, Jorge Misium. This space transforming installation, breaking the boundries of wall and ceiling, and wrapping the viewer in a participatory sound and movement experience, demonstrates Misium’s interest in creating spaces that directly engage the visitor. His artist statement illustrates this further: Jorge fabricates MIRRORS: Productions reflecting their visitors.
Jorge Misium is a Uruguay–U.S.A. dual national. Dr. Misium holds graduate degrees in science and in art (MFA Sculpture, PhD EE, MA, MS) from Berkeley, Rensselaer, and SMU. Professor Misium learns from teaching 4D Design, which he loosely defines to include subjects such as animation and interactive installations using high-tech tools, as well as traditional 3D design, sculpture and installation.
