Culver Current

--- Public Art Commission for Culver City City Hall2019 - On Going

Culver Current, consists of a 9-foot tall cylindrical steel frame with 494 LED panels inside a custom thermoformed Corian® shell. Projected video illuminates the Corian® surface from within, diffusing along ripples cut into the surface. Culver Current’s fountain uses no actual water. Instead, a series of video art works reflective of the greater Los Angeles and Culver City area are projected on the facade of the cylindrical sculpture. The fountain’s show lasts about 15 minutes long on a loop with accompanying sound by composer Luke Mombrea.

Rise and Fall

--- Mixed Media Sculpture and Installation, 2020, 2022

Rise and Fall by Nate Mohler, Matea Friend and David Friend, is a work about the embodiment of letting go and moving through – reminding us to be like water. Trapped bodies float through a body of water, equally contained within the fluid limits and unable to escape the loop, despite their attempts. Similarly, many of us experienced these feelings submerged in the chaos and hardships of 2020. At the end of the year, with all that had passed, we were eroded and changed. There is power in the embodiment of erosion and there is power in surrendering to the undulations of our earthly experiences. Bringing the human into the digital realm through indigo-dyed fabric, fans and 84 LED displays this piece illuminates the mesmerizing tranquility of releasing to those forces that are greater than us. The ghostly figures are David and Nate swimming in an undulating current. The motion of light is key to the symbiotic relationship between the oscillating waves of the fabric and the human figure. Shown in the US Bank Building in downtown LA May 1st, 2021.
