The Urbanauts—Sean Orlando and Matthew Passmore (Rebar)—present sculptural works based on a yearlong exploration of urban infrastructure and its relationship to the everyday experience of the contemporary city. Through a series of interwoven conversations, urban expeditions, design charettes, and conjectural artworks based at the de Young, the artists examine the ways in which urban inhabitants relate (or don’t relate) to the largely unseen mechanical systems, societal constructs, and cultural imperatives that mediate and structure life in the built environment.
This month concludes the Artist Fellowship of the Urbanauts. Sean Orlando will continue as a solo de Young Artist Fellow through spring 2014.
