This is Baltimore, too 2018, UV-cured pigment on polycarbonate, steel mechanism, electronics, strobe; 46"x46"x4"
"This is Baltimore, too celebrates the vitality of the city, specifically the street dancing subculture, as a counterpoint to its despairing image perpetrated by the media of crime, poverty, and violence. Its composition pulsates either away or towards the viewer depending on which direction the artwork is spun. When animated, hundreds of images of local freestyle hiphop dancers come to life, whose individual styles were filmed by the artist, himself a Baltimore native. The diamond-shaped gold-on-black dance floors borrow their shape and colors from the city’s flag." - Ronald Feldman Gallery
