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.
Artist Haiiileen creates a 10’ x 10’ commission installation at the W Hotel South Beach. The inspiration for this mixed media installation was taken from nostalgic Miami life, expressed through the manipulation of tropical flora, vivid colors, and linear lighting.
“Acid Tropic” is part of another fashion editorial video series produced by Artist Haiiileen for Z!NC fashion magazine. For this series she develops a digital sequence in the form of a hybrid reality, inspired by her intense and passionate love for fashion and digital art, Haiiileen creates an emotional virtual experience for its viewers in an innovative and experimental fashion ahead of its time.
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.
