Bins and Loops, Chadwick Rantanen
I am starting to catch up on a backlog of shows I wanted to post about but haven't had the chance. Chadwick Rantanen's show, Bins and Loops, at Essex was one of those. The loops are carbon fiber tubes wrapped in fabric from a nurse smock, and covered by a butyrate
plastic rod. Each segment represents a different popular children's character Eeyore, Tinkerbell, Garfield, Charlie Brown, etc. Rantanen indicates patterns where perhaps none were recognized.
