Nanotecture: A Beautiful Convergence of Geological Forms

Jennifer Strunge Jonathan Latiano

This beau­ti­ful, ghost­ly instal­la­tion is titled Nan­o­tec­ture and was a 2013 col­lab­o­ra­tion between artists Jen­nifer Strunge (AKA Cot­ton Mon­ster) and Jonathan Latiano. The site-spe­cif­ic work was made using velour, faux fur, recy­cled t-shirts, poly­ester stuff­ing, wood, foam, joint com­pound, paint, fans, and lights. (whew! What a list.) Here’s the idea behind the work:

Nan­o­tec­ture address­es notions of con­verg­ing biological/geological forms, archi­tec­tur­al inter­ven­tion, points of tran­si­tion and what it means to come upon some­thing. This project cre­at­ed a new gallery space at the School 33 Art Cen­ter [locat­ed in Bal­ti­more, Mary­land] in what was once a tele­phone booth.
