Steel, foam
10' x 16' x 23'

Coming Soon is an installation of two foam and steel facades inspired by the ubiquitous cardboard movie promotions used in theater lobbies. This sculpture collects partial images from several blockbuster films, layering them into planes of solid color. Here the form and support structure are highlighted, and the glossy images of movie stars and digitally rendered characters are erased, revealing both the pervasive nature and fleeting relevance of mass-marketed, big budget film culture.
