Futurise Us
Santa Cruz, CA
California­ based artist Joan Raspo investigates the point where illusion and reality meet. She strives to influence the viewer’s perception of her work, thereby forcing them to reconsider both the reality of an art piece, their relationship to the piece, and finally their relationship with reality. She sees art as both discourse and entertainment ­ a space in which to build drama and tension that invites interaction with her audience.

Joan's piece for Creative Tech Week is a life-sized Magic 8 Ball. Titled, ASK.ME: the piece is an interactive installation housing a touch activated perceptual hologram that senses a viewer’s presence and produces an answer that hovers inside an inverted pyramid. The illusion is refracted upon the mirrors lining the inside of a large geodesic dome— creating a multiplicity of imagery.

Joan's work will be shown at ODETTA
