Opened on June 30th, PILES OF STUFF: Depression, Hoarding, Nostalgia, Escapism by Rachel Breaker is a technical exercise in making 3D environments. With this work, Rachel practices several techniques such as creating procedural struts, terrains with curves and voxels and adding support armature procedurally. She also sought to replicate the inconsistencies found in prefabricated products.
Piles of Stuff has wide-ranging influences such as the Russian film The Adventures of Buratino by director Leonid Nechayev, and children’s playgrounds. In addition to these influences, Rachel found inspiration in the art and architecture of the fast food industry. Visual elements such as brick, wood, and basket weave textures can be seen commonly throughout the work.
