Congrats! RM Fischer Relocates to New Rochelle

A 7.5-ton sculpture by internationally known artist R. M. Fischer was dedicated Saturday in its new home atop the hill in Ruby Dee Park at Library Green. The sculpture previously enriched the Los Angeles headquarters of Sony Studios.

 

Inspired in part by classic science fiction, the art piece – which now includes solar energy to power its lights – resembles elements of a flying saucer or a futuristic gazebo. It was a gift to the New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) from Fischer, whose works are known for adding iconic and imaginative new looks to prominent public areas from San Francisco to Kansas City to Brooklyn and have shown from Europe to Japan. He has a show opening this fall in London and some of his gallery works are now exhibited Downtown at Backstreet Gallery.

 

“New Rochelle recognizes the enormous value of public art in shaping a culturally vibrant and attractive city center,” New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson said at the dedication. “The R.M. Fischer sculpture at Ruby Dee Park is part of this effort and will be a noteworthy addition to one of our most active civic spaces.”

 

The Fischer sculpture was originally installed at the Sony offices under the aegis of LA Art Advisor Michelle Isenberg and Ashley Calhoun who also oversaw its transfer to New Rochelle. A Bulfamante Landscaping installed the sculpture in Library Green, and Croton Energy installed the solar panels.

ISENBERG & ASSOCIATES INC. CONGRATULATES REFIK ANADOL’S OPENING OF “INFINITY ROOM” IN BEIJING

“Infinity Room” is an immersive environment project by Refik Anadol. This project is an integral part of artist’s ongoing ‘Temporary Immersive Environment Experiments’; explorations of audio/visual installations states. Refik aims to submerge the viewer in a state of consciousness where their awareness of physical self is transformed by being surrounded in an engrossing environment; often artificial, creating a perception of presence in a non-physical world. 

Infinity Room’s newest edition has opened in Beijing at Today Art Museum. The project has traveled across the world visiting 12 cities across 4 continents and has been visited more than 100.000 times so far.

ISENBERG & ASSOCIATES, INC. CONGRATULATES REFIK ANADOL ON THE OPENING OF “ARCHIVE DREAMING” AT SALT 2017, ISTANBUL, TURKEY

Commissioned to work with SALT Research collections, artist Refik Anadol employed machine learning algorithms to search and sort relations among 1,700,000 documents. Interactions of the multidimensional data found in the archives are, in turn, translated into an immersive media installation. Archive Dreaming, which is presented as part of The Uses of Art: Final Exhibition with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union, is user-driven; however, when idle, the installation “dreams” of unexpected correlations among documents. The resulting high-dimensional data and interactions are translated into an architectural immersive space.
