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.
206 Discotec is Haiiileen’s first commissioned sculpture created back in April 2017 making it a one of a kind special mixed media project. Inspired by architectural design and her use of vaporwave, color, and more sustainable use of acrylics. She utilizes acrylic, steel and LED along with an iridescent treatment to the wall in order to produce a 2 foot wide, 4 foot long, and 1 ½ foot deep 3D sculpture as part of a private collection at a residence based in New York.
Disco Moon is a literal reflection of my belief that everything should be a disco ball in the sense of the feeling of happiness they bring to life. Utilizing mirrors and lights as a medium allowed me to project the notion that we shouldn’t have to be in the presence of an actual disco ball to feel its radiance.This piece was commissioned for III Point’s office space and is illuminated by custom 360 degree LED lighting.
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.
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.

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.
