Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Cultured monster A project report
by Meyer, Stefan, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 13; 1527732
Abstract (Summary)

My work is inspired by modes of production that involve the creation, sampling, and remixing of objects, processes, and ideas that surround us. This methodology is especially prevalent in the creation and consumption of electronic music in recent decades. The fluidity and proliferation through digital processes are fascinating and not many rules of engagement have yet been established. I have created an installation where the viewer is free to engage the space, the process, or the single object. The components used to form the installation were grown, collected, or created using multiple methods of production. Some were printed employing computer numerically controlled fabrication, others were made through analog processes, and some were even grown naturally, were found, bought, or mined for. Concurrently I was working with an active 3D printer in the space, forming more components to the installation as time passed. I invited the viewer to explore the physical space as well as the objects and processes themselves. Together they built a sculptural space.
