WIIISH is a site specific sculpture piece that provides some context into Haiiileen’s hypnotic world. Her neo-acid futurism landscape for TIDAL is an in depth study of light theory and optical enchantment reflected in the piece’s layers of color, texture and patterns. Fluorescent marbled swirls accent the black and white facades to draw the viewer in and engage this vaporwave nostalgia refuge.
Haiiileen’s elevated aesthetic pushes the boundaries of newly conceptualized contemporary thought combining acid, a term more commonly used to describe music movements, and contemporary futurism found within architecture. The symmetry of circles in the stairs and use of optical illusions speak to her futurism influences and creates more elevated depth within the space.
