The image depicts a digital cube created in the 3-D modeling environment: Blender. This cube can be seen as a “back body” of sorts that contains an internal light generating source, which it emits to the external world beyond it boundaries by means of a series mechanical louvered doors that exist on each of the six faces of the cube. Digital video generated from the process of animating this object will be displayed inside an actual cube, constructed from wood.

Theo Mullen | With Small Changes There is a slab of concrete that was once a factory floor. What remains are various bits of material used by local skaters as obstacles. What strikes me is the directness and simplicity in creating what seemed to me as formal sculptures full of movement and transition. Through a photography and sculpture installation I challenged myself to use the material within the reclaimed skate park to create a series of arrangements employing a similar aesthetic. The sculptures draw from the raw and archetypal material used in creating DIY skate parks.
