The above image was dispersed by artist Nick Rodrigues (Sculpture/Installation Fellow ’07), announcing the latest interactive project in his Hi (Human Interaction) series.
Nick is seeking participants for his “social love experiment” at the BEEHIVE’s next art show Sting 4, February 18th from 6:30 pm-9:30 pm. Artists are encouraged to send personal ads of 60 words or less by 2/14 (click the image and read the cocktail napkin to find out how). The ads will be displayed on beer glasses, and at the art show, as Nick puts it, “Every drink you buy is a chance for love.”
Nick has a gift for illustrating intriguing ideas through hilarious, interactive art. Recently, he drew the attention of WBZ news in Boston when he donned a portable, one-person tollbooth to drive home (as it were) the personal impact of toll hikes.
In November, Nick led a group of teen artists (he’s the resident sculptor at the youth art organization Artist for Humanity) as they lit the way to the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo at Boston Children’s Museum. Teens dressed in colonial garb carried LED-lamp “torches” and rode stationary bikes that used pedal power to light up signs reading “The GREEN Revolution is Coming” and “Proclaim Sustainability Throughout the Land.”
All images care of Nick Rodrigues.
