Jason Rogenes turns packing packing material into glowing obelisks at ManufÂ®actured: The conspicuous transformation of everyday objects via BBG.
Artist Jason Rogenes first found his raw material while living in the commerce-driven, big-box store, strip mall environment of Los Angeles where polystyrene was inexpensive and easily procured. In this abundant byproduct of consumer culture, originally designed to protect packaged electronics and other products, he saw the potential for material transformation. For ManufÂ®actured, he has created a floating, glowing site-specific installation in the museumâ€™s two story main gallery flanked by a wall construction of polystyrene and cardboard.
