Description

Nick Dong ‘s On Models of Contemplation includes three new dynamic sculptures that will create an experiential environment in the Off Center Gallery.

Considering the Big Bang theory and the creation of the universe as a point of departure, Dong is inspired by the moment after the violent explosion: the ethereal event where there is enough gravitational pull between positive and negative matter. These new works continue Dong’s Cosmic Dance series, a body of work that incorporates levitation technology, original music, and movement. Aside from scientific and cosmic themes in his practice, his works include topics that relate to human relationships and spirituality.

Nick Dong is a conceptual metalsmith, mixed-media sculptor and scocio-commodity engineer. Dong’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at Mercury 20 Gallery, Oakland, San Francisco Museum of Craft + Design, Kunstbanken Museum, Norway, and MOCA Taipei, Taiwan, among others. In 2012, Nick Dong presented a site-specific installation at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. And last fall, Dong completed a large-scale installation for the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.
