Tom Sachs Boombox Retrospective (1999-2016)
Posted: Aug 11 2016
The king of the New York City "DIY" art movement Tom Sachs is displaying his series of "tech-meets-art" works at the Brooklyn Museum until the 14th of August, 2016. The legendary creative is known for his ability to manipulate everyday objects into sculptural works, as evidenced from his genius "stereo" art in which he has been creating for the last 20+ years.
The installation includes Toyan’s (2002), a group of speakers eight feet tall by twelve feet across inspired by Jamaican sound systems, and Presidential Vampire Booth (2002), complete with a stocked bar and Presidential seal. Sachs’s work is crafted from a wide range of materials such as plywood, foamcore, batteries, duct tape, wires, hot glue, and solder.
