Urbanauts: Now available for custom installations in your home!
An 18-month long Artist Fellowship at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, Urbanauts is a speculative exploration of urban infrastructure and its relationship to the everyday experience of the contemporary city. Through a series of interwoven conversations, urban expeditions, design charrettes, and conjectural artworks based at the de Young, MoreLab’s Matthew Passmore collaborated with artist Sean Orlando to examine the ways in which urban inhabitants relate (or don’t relate) to the largely unseen mechanical systems, societal constructs, and cultural imperatives that mediate and structure life in the built environment.
After the Urbanauts Artist Fellowship concluded at the de Young, Matthew and Sean agreed to donate a custom Urbanauts sculpture to the “Artumnal” auction fundraiser for the Black Rock Arts Foundation, the arm of Burning Man that funds interactive civic art projects in cities around the world (now known as Burning Man Arts).
At the Artumnal auction, not one but two motivated bidders won custom made sculptures inspired by the form, structure and complexities of urban infrastructure.
