"Michael Oliveri Fast Food, Hydrocarbons and Waves in Outer Space"
2004-06-19 until 2004-08-07
Atlanta Contemporary Art Center
Atlanta, GA, USA United States of America

Michael Oliver’s solo show is inspired by several related scientific discoveries and new theories of a finite universe. The exhibition fuses the aesthetics of experimental video, sculpture, and science. In one gallery, the soil-free fast-growing food facility “NASA Nourishment” is accompanied by NASA exploration video footage. Another installation incorporates glass sculptures of hydrocarbon models on Styrofoam surfaces that suggest the surface of Mars.

Images of waves and surfing in two installations evoke the influence of surfing and sailing on Oliveri’s development as an artist growing up in Southern California. From specific scientific observations about Fullerenes, Hydroponics, and Sonic Growth, Oliveri makes the broader point that innovation often occurs not as a result of structured research, but of accidental discoveries.
