SHANNON WRIGHT : MOONSHOT
My new pieces have been inspired by my ever-shifting relationship to Silicon Valley. Using local corporate architecture and all the aspirations and attitudes it embodies as a jumping-off point, I've been experimenting with a variety of structural systems in small-scale sculptures. With these modular structures I aim to convey a sense of the limitless ambition and “fake it till you make it” optimism of startup-culture– a striking counterpoint to the forced exodus of many longtime residents of the region. I intend for these pieces to serve as subjective, abstract distillations of my interpretations of the Silicon Valley zeitgeist. - Shannon Wright
