SOFT LAB- Keith
Michael Szivos is one of the founders of SOFT LAB studios in New York City. I had the pleasure of hearing him speak at a Visiting Artist presentation at my old school. This was where I was introduced to the work of him and his team. SOFT LAB creates massive installments of contemporary sculpture incorporated into architectural scenes. They have created a wide variety of incredible pieces of art with multiple mediums and colors, and the work is mind blowing. Being at one of these shows, when entire rooms or even buildings are interactive pieces, is one of the most spectacular concepts to this work. They often times will put donator's and contributor's names in the pieces, and they are a studio who has a very dynamic, very creative mentality. These installments from concept, to construction, to show, are all documented with time lapse photo or video for the most part. Their website www.softlabnyc.com, which I highly recommend visiting, is where you can see all of the installments the studio has produced.
