Klausgallery has presented a show by artist Sara Ludy. The new featured work in this show is called simply “Rooms”. who is featuring a new work called Rooms, which comes from her more extensive collection of work called “Space Portraits”.
Sara uses the spatial manipulation tools from Google’s SketchUp 3D Warehouse program, contorting the ‘rooms’ into digital offspring, merging architecture, modern technical design, with abstract, even futuristic flavors. There is an accompanying soundtrack which proves to be almost spooky, using synthetic music to pair perfectly with a synthetically created reality.
According to Klausgallery: “Her interest in the creative constraints of “defaults” of both architecture and software manifests in the work in the models chosen, as well as in the textures created by Ludy using a simple browser-based painting tool common in online forums.
The artist-composed soundtrack, diligent video composition, and original textures are tempered by more oblique gestures, such as the choice by Ludy to re-photograph the piece by means of a projector in physical space prior to uploading to YouTube, reflecting her capacity to balance auteuristic experimentation with an acceptance of the essential unity of physical and idealized spaces.”
