Kent Caldwell Exhibits in Las Vegas

Precipice full

The Collective, an exhibition of artwork produced by the Cirque du Soleil staff including Kent Caldwell (BFA 2010), is on display through June 14 in Las Vegas.

The work features a range of mediums and styles, including paintings, drawings, costumes and costume pieces, jewelry and other works, including a mixed media diorama by Mystere” acrobat Kent Caldwell.

It’s a wall-mounted piece with a lot of found objects, hand-sculpted pieces and some 3‑D printed parts,” Caldwell said. There are embedded electronics that are activated by… well, it’s sort of meant to contain secrets.”

The whimsical work is part of the body of work Caldwell began in his final year studying art and design at the University of Michigan. He’s been working on it for six years.

I’m trying to bring in all sorts of influences in my life, but I’m also realizing that the technology and the post-digital age we’re living in are creeping more into my dioramas,” Caldwell said. I sort of construct them as subconscious spaces too and let the (art and technology) intermingle more.”
