SITE-SPECIFIC ART EXPLORING HISTORY OF FORT HUMBOLDT TO BE INSTALLED IN EUREKA
New York-based, Eureka-raised artist Nick Hubbard will present a series of sculptural installations around town that engage with the history of Fort Humboldt. The works will be first set in place this coming Saturday, April 23, 2016. Some of the installations will disappear within a few days, other may take longer but they are all temporary.
A participatory event on Sunday, April 24, will accompany the installations. The artist will be on-site at Fort Humboldt, and citizens are invited to come and jointly build a collection of paper models of the fort buildings. These models will contain messages written by participants that will be shared back with the community over a timespan corresponding to the activity of the Fort.
The project, Through Various Hazards and Adventures We Move is derived from digital models constructed using documentary photographs of Fort Humboldt, utilizes 3D printing technology combined with traditional model-making, and takes the form of a series of expanded dioramas that change over time.
Nick Hubbard is currently a Master’s candidate at the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. Through Various Hazards is his thesis.
