Although Balci and Hoover</p><p>implement distinct artistic practices, both artists present</p><p>new works of precisely controlled media, imbued with theirruminations on the structures of interpersonal relationships,</p><p>international affairs, and geography.</p></li><li><p>8/3/2019 bMichael Events This Week 9 December 2011</p><p> 8/31</p><p>SELIN BALCI- Interact and Transform</p><p>Selin Balci applies an acute scientific laboratory practice</p><p>to create her current body of works on paper and board.</p><p>Balci researches simple microorganisms in the lab and</p><p>records the manners in which they interact with one</p><p>another, as well as the colors and aesthetics those</p><p>interactions produce. Balci then creates an artificial living</p><p>environment with limited space and nourishment in a Petri</p><p>dish. Based on her research on colors and behavior, the</p><p>organisms are selected and placed in the Petri dish.</p><p>The simple living organisms are forced to compete and to</p><p>dominate a particular area. Eventually, the</p><p>microorganisms live in harmony. Balci then literally transfers</p><p>the microorganisms to paper or clayboard where shemakes aesthetic decisions about form and color. Selin</p><p>Balci's works are beautiful records of the battles and</p><p>construction of borders, as well as the treaties between</p><p>entities.</p><p>To Balci, these qualities, situations and conflicts echo the</p><p>full scope of the human condition. In an artificially</p><p>constructed living platform Balci is the impresario and her</p><p>performers are hostile, yet fragile microorganisms.</p><p>RYAN HOOVER- Sculpting with Satellites</p><p>In his new body of work, Sculpting with Satellites, Ryan</p><p>Hoover explores multiple modes of space - from the lived</p><p>space of the his neighborhood, to the abstracted spatial</p><p>language of GPS, into the Cartesian space of 3D modeling</p><p>software, and back out into compositional and physical</p><p>space of drawing and sculpture.</p><p>The works in this exhibition include sculptures and drawingson Plexiglas that began as walks through the artist's</p><p>neighborhood, in which he tracked his travels via global</p><p>positioning. The GPS data was processed through a</p><p>computer script written by Hoover that plots this data into</p><p>3D modeling software, scaling the points within a</p><p>Cartesian cube. This generates a path through space,</p><p>where the width is modulated according to the speed at</p><p>which Hoover was walking. Ryan Hoover then translated</p><p>each digital model into a sculptural rendering by using a</p><p>variety of computer-aided machining techniques.</p><p>Also included in this exhibition are sculptures that areselections from the paths, chosen as studies, and created</p><p>as physical objects by milling and laminating. Hoover then</p><p>continued to work with these pieces in a sculptural</p><p>manner, employing an aesthetic sensibility that is also</p><p>rooted in a non-linguistic understanding of space,</p><p>material, and form. The result is a suite of smooth, white</p><p>undulating shapes that twist and change direction.</p><p>Hoover's process ebbs and flows between manipulating</p><p>his materials with his own hand, and manipulating the</p><p>works through an intermediary tool to better understand</p><p>space.</p><p>Increasingly, we are surrounded by objects that are</p><p>digitally designed and created. Assisted by GPS, we travel</p><p>down roads that were also plotted by GPS.
