FRESH FACES IN ART: EIGHT LA ARTISTS YOU SHOULD KNOW
AILI SCHMELTZ Aili Schmeltz’s hybrid image/objects reside in dualities of time and space between analog-digital strategies, nostalgia-futuristic realms, and social protocols. Her research calls upon responses drawn from actual and possible events of middle class suburbia. In her current body of work “Psionic Generators,” she combines interests of utopic architecture and philosophy by using blueprints of physical theories found in a 1970s book of parapsychological studies of ESP activation. Transmutations are generated that allow tactics to overwrite material history, bringing to the surface questions of function. (KG). http://www.ailischmeltz.com
