Inspired by her work with American Apparel, Artist Haiiileen created this installation as a representation of her work within retail showcasing the prison of “fast fashion” and the ultimate downfall of this side of the fashion world. The upsidedown sign is a symbolization of how we not only perceive retail in our society but the modern demise of American culture and political views as a whole.

SUNSET @ NOON

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.

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.
