Emblematic Translations Receives Public Art Award from CODAWorx
7/24/2019
HAVA studios and White Art Studio are pleased to announce that their project EMBLEMATIC TRANSLATIONS has been given a public art award by CODAWorx and is published on Flipboard inCODAmagazine: Art with a Message II Issue.

EMBLEMATIC TRANSLATIONS is a site-specific light projection that promotes a contemporary view of cultural values shared within the Hispanic Society's collections and re-imagined views of the respective countries' flags. The installation encourages engagement in history, place and art through a vibrant, two dimensional digital experience projected onto the front of the Hispanic Society Museum in New York, New York.

photo This work “highlights the the currency of creativity and collaboration”. The concept interprets the visual language of Spanish and Portuguese speaking nations' flags and their emblems as cultural symbols, downloaded through a Google search and digitally altered through selective pixelation into new iterations. The flat blocks of basic color that comprise most flags render them recognizable from a distance and these block forms are reiterated in the contemporary and oversized pixels in our images, but our pixels express variations of each hue, while refracting the specific symbols into abstract designs.

The work creates the illusion of a digital rendering viewed from a distance, and require engaged perception to be understood. The flags are meant to be recognizable and distinct but also to display the presence of converging cultures. The process reflects White Art Studio's experiences in several Hispanic countries, most recently a visit to Cuba in 2015, and celebrates the complex and resilient culture enjoyed there, while appreciating cohesive thread of language. Travel memories are colored by layered realities and interpretations.

White Art Studio's photographic documentation of Emblematic Translations was on display at All Things Project Gallery in Greenwhich Village, NYC in June.

White Art Studio is an arts collective made up of artists Shannon White and Darin White who collaborate to provide Public Art, plus. HAVA studios is a firm that helps produce custom fabricated projects including furniture, lighting and artwork. www.havastudios.com
