Cool Hunting Video Presents: Jonathan Schipper
Brooklyn artist Jonathan Schipper uses technology and heavy metal in his latest undertaking, "Factitious"
"Attempt at an Invisible Sphere," a globe made from 215 cameras and screens, was our first introduction to Jonathan Schipper's work. When we had the chance to visit the Brooklyn-based artist in his studio recently, we got to check out more of the "mechanical paradoxes" that make up Schipper's ouevre and watch him tinker on his latest undertaking, an animatronic sculpture set in motion by a player piano reel of Slayer's "Raining Blood." The piece debuted in a group show that opened last Friday, 23 June 2006, called "Factitious" at Brooklyn's Pierogi Gallery, and will run through 31 July 2006.
