gold-clad decades ( in space ) during miami art week 2023

 

A design project benefiting pioneering non-profit internet radio station dublab debuts Space Chairs assembled from vinyl record album packaging at Alcova during Art Basel Miami Beach / Miami Art Week 2023. The exhibition entitled decades ( in space ) commemorates two decades of dublab’s space-making cultivation of global experimentation through community-generated radio. The exhibition particularly unfolds at the Selina Gold Dust Motel, in a room wrapped in sparkling gold sheets for thermal protection in spacecrafts, from December 5th through 10th, 2023. Each room of the motel is being transformed into galleries with select artists shaping the future of design.

The album’s make space kit includes a chair assembled from the album packaging designed by NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory UX Designer Marijke Jorritsma, Sustainable Experience Designer Daniel Perlin, Architectural Designer John Vieweg, and Arts Technologist KamranV from Cykik, who is also the album’s producer. A one-of-one edition of the record designed with multi-disciplinary artist Dyan Jong and design researcher Rucker Manley has real outer space rocks embedded and will also be on display as a part of the exhibition. In the room, visitors sit on the unique, galaxy-laden chairs while listening to the rare quadraphonic spatial vinyl record, immersing the listening space via four speakers for temporal bliss.
