Artist Haiiileen uses disco balls and metallic fringe curtains to create a texture of different layers and colors creating an effect of disco balls swimming in seaweed for this installation at Club Space.
Artist Haiiileen uses her inspiration from the Women’s March to experiment with her love for interactive installations by creating a space for people to stop and express themselves using dry erase marker. The installation took place during an extremely political time in the nation causing much of the written “graffiti” on the walls to consist of heavy political suggestion.
Artist Haiiileen displays her love of color and disco balls through her captivating design, other worldly visuals and whimsical stimulation of the senses in her New Year’s installation for Jamie Jones part of a year long series and residency at Club Space.
A performance piece inspired by the photographic series “Acid Trees.” In this series creatively produced and developed by Artist Haiiileen, she utilizes acrylic paint on real palm trees to transform each palm by hand. Inspired by her love for still life, Haiiileen captures this colorful series of trees playing with our perception of nature and reality.
“Hypnotic” (2016) a special performance art piece by Artist Haiiileen in which she utilizes one of her many set designs and multiple layers of fabric to create a wormhole effect in black and white hypnotic patterns inside the installation. As part of the art piece, Haiiileen transforms herself into a character of optical illusion and uses her background in fashion to create a look that blends into the performance simultaneously creating a series of stills and videos based on the piece.
III Points Festival at Mana Wynwood October 6-9, 2016
Inspired by the “vaporwave shopping center” called Sunsets @ Noon where all the artistic aspirations of Haiiileen converge: music, fashion, visual terrain and interactive installations.
Visitors travel through the installation on a journey to an obsolete past: an initiative that turns vapowave into a living fantasy.
On the installation and its concept, Quintana has said this to Billboard :
“Malls are becoming obsolete, and that is a thing of the past, of our generation’s pop culture. Vaporwave has so much to do with mall ambience noises … and we now see fashion as an internet commodity. I’m paying my respect and homage to the dead malls. “
Quintana has partnered with designers ISHINE365, Style Mafia and Algae to create the different departments and spaces of the shopping center. Quintana will also present her Interdimensional Baths video in Miami , with an aesthetic similar to Greco-Roman sculptures that also connect with the vaporwave.
