Locust Projects: 2018 Annual Smash & Grab Fundraiser

I am so excited to announce my work will be featured in Locust Project’s annual Smash & Grab Fundraiser on Saturday, October 13, 2018. This year, I will be donating a print from my “Aciiid Palm” series.

There is no other fundraiser quite like this one. The lively event revolves around a raffle, for which over one hundred local, national and international artists have donated artwork — enough so that each raffle ticket is guaranteed to win an artwork. Tickets are drawn at random during the party, with the winner getting their choice of artwork (i.e, first called gets first pick, and so on). The result is a fun way to place artwork into collections, build visibility for artists, connect with Miami’s art community, and support Locust Projects.

My name is @Haiiileen and I am an interdisciplinary artist specializing in developing immersive environments that include custom-made large-scale light sculptures. I’ve always had a fascination with the concept of being able to envelop my audiences and take them into alternate realities through my work. Many of my past works share the common theme of taking spaces and creating abstract environments within them that have the ability to take the viewers to another place in time. A new destination fabricated by multisensory experiences and my synesthesia-fueled imagination: Miami’s first experimental open studio.

title-1_preview.png

For the past year, I have been developing an experiential concept that blurs the boundary between performance art and an open studio format where I am able to invite the local community into my creative process, transporting the host space and visitors into multidimensional worlds of color, light, and fantasy also serving as a platform for alternative translations.

As a female mentor within my city of Miami, I feel that this project is something that is needed for the growth of our artistic population and can only push the limitations of what can be experienced and created. I would like to be able to provide the opportunity for individuals from the community to be a part of something greater, having the possibility to interact with not only each other but with the public platform I can provide for them to create with.

This concept will allow for not only me to have a space to continue creating, but for those who participate to have a chance to bring something in and leave something behind;

This experimental open studio will be made up of two sections: the public space and artist studio. The public space will be a constantly evolving environment where the community will be able to explore, feel, dream, think and express their ideas. It will include a multisensory fabrication lab that will help further explore the theme of social interaction within the community. The artist studio will not only be where I will be creating but will also serve as a component of performance art, allowing those within the studio to watch me create.

The bulk of the donations would go towards the cost of the studio space (approx. $8,000). The remaining donations will be allocated towards compensation for assistants and laborers involved (approx. $5,000), administrative and marketing costs (approx. $3,000), costs for design (approx. $2,000) and materials and supplies needed to make this vision come to life (approx. $7,000). Fortunately, I receive an overwhelming amount of donated materials from different partners throughout the city, which helps in reducing the cost of this project. The more funds I am able to raise, the more intricate this project can become, and in the case of overfunding, the extra money will provide more materials and supplies.

Remember, any donation from you or from friends you share this with is incredibly helpful!! Thank you so much for your support, I can’t wait to make this idea become reality!

Multimedia, Multi-layer, Acrylic panels

6 panels 48 x 32

Exploring the multidimensional layers of our atmosphere from the core of the earth to the outer surface and into the vast expanses of the galaxy, artist Haiiilleen utilizes six 48×32 size multimedia, multi-layer, acrylic panels to create her 2 part 3 panel series. Each panel forms a mirrored image of the other creating a large scale immersive environment where guests can experience it as a photo booth and journey through an abstract neo-tropical oasis transporting them through the creative evolution of life and the universe surrounding it.
