No 45 Cynthia Minet
Title: Adventures in the Uncanny Valley, 2016. Post-consumer plastics, LEDs. 18 x 14 x 4 inches.
This piece reflects my love/hate relationship with technology. Ennui is like a dripping faucet, nagging at one to be fixed. How lost will we get in the uncanny valley?
Cynthia Minet was raised in Rome, Italy, and is based in Los Angeles, CA. Minet works with post-consumer plastics, light, and sound, to construct illuminated sculptures and site-specific installations that are both beautiful and sinister. Her mixed media drawings are rendered in a loose and gestural style. All of Minet’s works carry strong environmental, political and social content.
Solo installations include the USC Fisher Museum, the Culver Center for the Arts/ UCR ARTSblock, and a temporary public work at LA International Airport. Shown in group shows nationally and internationally, Minet has upcoming solo exhibitions at the International Museum of Art and Science in McAllen,Texas, and at the Craft and Folk Art Museum, Los Angeles, CA.
