40 ft. x 30 ft. , mix-media light sculpture
60 individual fashion influenced collages on 29 in. x 45 in. acrylic panels taking over the entirety of a 1,200 sq/ft wall inside of MANA Wynwood accenting an abstract chandelier made from over 70 custom acrylic elements.
Inspired by Club Kids, a fashion subculture characterized in the underground NYC music scene in the late 80’s and inspired by how music influences the way we dress and ultimately the way we express ourselves. Haiiileen creates 60 abstract representations as a reflection of her life work in the realm of music, art, and fashion. Each encapsulates a memory from different stages of her life, the installation and individual pieces representing a collage of these moments. The full-scale view of the installation is a mirror, each panel reflecting the other and further embodying this reflective theme. When you first approach the piece you’ll encounter a sweeping arrangement of multi-colored lights ranging across a dynamic gradient of colors. As you walk closer to the installation your eye is drawn to the male guardians at the base of the installation. These represent foundations of strength and beauty. Your gaze will then find itself face to face with a portal door, guarded by two mannequins representing a king and queen, acting as guardians of light and protection as you transport yourself into the festival and reach another dimension at the Main Frame Stage.

Inspired by Vaporwave, a culture characterized by a nostalgic fascination of retro aesthetics, video games, technology and advertising, Sunset@Noon submerges festivalgoers into a state of alternate dimension. The installation takes over the entirety of a 6,000 square foot warehouse space at MANA, morphing into a multisensory experience of art, music, and fashion, each expressed in vintage, internet based aesthetics. At the pinnacle of the room will be an interactive fashion installation that mirrors the appearance of a real life shopping mall, complete with department stores, kiosks, and abstractions by local fashion brands ISHINE365, Style Mafia, and Algae. The multisensory mall installation fuses audio and visual dimension into reality through
a virtual shopping experience, echoed by experimental performances courtesy of local musicians Virgo, Uchi, Otto von Schirach, Rat Bastard and more. Attendees will stroll through time and space, as the vibration of psychedelic music pulsates, and one dimensional barriers slowly fade away. New forms of visual art will be showcased such as a transformation chamber “Make Up Salon,” where guests can peer through acrylic doors and catch a glimpse of behind the scenes hair and makeup artists transforming the performers. III Point’s artists will enter the chamber throughout the course of the festival, providing more of a high fashion look for their performance.
Aileen Quintana explores the realms of performance art, such as an experimental marbelizing act titled Interdimensional baths and more. Additional elements of the Sunset@Noon experience include a VHS store by Veronica Gessa, Dale Zine lounge and art from Strangeways, GG artwork, Jay Shogo, Natasha Tomchin, and an artist collective from Post Vision along with a hangglider painted by the esteemed artist, Brian Butler.

In “HAILEEN” (2015) Artist Haiiileen creates a transformative narrative in the form of multiple rooms, inspired by her travels, lust and sexuality she takes on a more refined approach to performance art spaces creating a deeper meaning to each room. The first room is a bonsai garden with trees, a flowing river, and colors reminiscent of a japanese sunrise. The second room is a transformation chamber where hair stylists and makeup artists await to makeover guests. The third room is a game show room which has a performance pieces inspired by anime and japanese video games. Last but not least, the fourth room is a seduction room riddled with a dominatrix theme. Haiiileen left her own phone number in advertisements pasted all over the walls of the room for those “seeking therapy.” Throughout the entire event people were calling, leaving her voicemails and text messages with their concerns and heartfelt messages.
