Contributed by Loren Britton / Anna Uddenberg’s “Sante Par Aqua” (Health Through Water) comprises objects that propose spaces adjacent to furniture that bodies might occupy. Shapes are created, stacked like a life-size textural cubist painting. Rounded edges and neon floor illuminations elevate the sculptures into hybrid objects – car seat (for adult and child), shag rug, illuminated i-phone glow on someone’s face, 70’s wood paneling décor with a prom dress laid over the orange/yellow plaid couch are some of the images that came to mind as I imagined buckling into the pods.
