Design studio Mogollon have collaborated with Stephen Burks Man Made to create Colorfield for 2016’s Miami Art Basel.
Colorfield is an immersive installation developed by internationally recognized industrial designer Stephen Burks and graphic artists Francisco Lopez & Monica Brand of Mogollon as part of a group exhibition at The Dog Miami curated by Christopher “Jillionaire” Leacock (of Major Lazer) in collaboration with Xavier Burt & Poplife.
Like a kind of reflected sky floating above the Dog’s open air courtyard, the installation imagined attracts and unifies a diverse line up of artists, musicians and designers whose thinking is indicative of a new artistic spirit; a spirit where image, space and sound come together seamlessly without unnecessary categorical divisions under an umbrella of free expression. In colorful pop brushstrokes and graphic woven texture, Colorfield boldly defines and envelopes the visitor in mottled light during the day and a 3-dimensional veil of reflected dancehall light at night to support all of the functions of the projects diverse program.
