Yellow

Yellow

Wang's installation Yellow took place in the MIT Media Lab. Its goal was to facilitate a discussion beyond the parameters of language in a sarcastically charged way.

You Are Here

This interactive piece helps people create their own mandalas, patterns symbolizing greater connection to oneself.

The artist, Mayuri Saxena wanted to make the user realize their presence in a particular place, for a particular experience.    

What I Mean When I Say I’m Going Home

Dimensions variable

Three-channel audio and sculpture installation composed of televisions, antennas, radios, rosaries handmade out of telephone wire, spiritual artifacts, photographs and letters, psychiatric hospital files, bricks, roofing shingles, clothing, and recordings taken from various sites associated with home or family. Audio: (1) sound of a burning building permeates the space (2) sound of singing comes from and air vent--as if heard from another room (3) periodically an evangelical preacher speaking in tongues pierces the air, from an unplugged tube radio.
 

September 2nd

"September 2nd" is about the burning of the National Museum of Brazil. As a Brazilian experiencing this tremendous loss here in the states, Zayra found it to be very difficult to raise awareness and empathy. She invited viewers to interact with the piece by ripping the shredded words until the gallery wall was completely bare and surrounded by the remnants of what once there. The writings were sourced from the Museum's website, news articles, and the artist's own personal thoughts.
