Interactive art
Experience Dan Steinhilber’s interactive Interface artwork
, which was recently featured at G Fine Art, DC, in a slightly different configuration. Comprising five inflatable, bag-like sculptures (made from plastic stretch wrap, wood, and computer fans), Interface is a riff on our addiction to the Internet, instant yet remote communication, and virtual reality. The wearable aspect of these works­—visitors can insert their “talking-heads” inside the sculptures while their hands remain outside—offers an estranged and disembodied experience. Steinhilber is a DC-based artist whose work has been exhibited at numerous institutions, including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Kreeger Museum in Washington, DC; Baltimore Museum of Art; MASS MoCA, North Adams, Massachusetts; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas; and Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto.
