This is Marcelo Coelho. Never knew of him until I started this research phase, and I have to say his works are one of the most impressive few I’ve come across! He placed a lot of emphasis on the rationale behind every one of his live installations and focuses on the boundaries between matter and computation. His installations appeared at the Rio 2016 Paralympics Opening Ceremony as well as many other renowned museums worldwide. Being a Brazilian computation artist and designer, he also curated many wearable products and robotics.
To briefly sum it up, I enjoyed this work titled “Window to the Heart” where the whole fixture was made of resin. (how very expensive!) Situated at the Times Square during the period near Valentine’s Day (2018), a few couples got proposed at the very spot where the illuminated installation was placed. I’ll delve deeper into the artwork in future time, but here are some visuals for you in the meantime.
