About This Piece
BOING SPLASH entices concepts of play and life. Color captivates attention while perspective adjustments and a spirited character to instigates the imagination.
BOING SPLASH was created in several evolving collaborative stages. Artists, Hollis+Lana made a drawing together, then developed parts of the drawing into a character in the virtual world. They placed the virtual character into a virtual environment, and took a photo of BOING SPLASH in this virtual environment and placed the photo over an image of the wall as it existed. Then using telephones, ladders and water-based spray paint, they painted the image from the virtual land into the 20’ by 70’ wall.
The artists were assisted by youth from several of the recreation center’s groups.
