This sculpture, created for the new Netflix production offices building on Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles, commemorates the site’s historical landmark location as Warner Brother’s original Los Angeles location where the first talkie film was produced. The stainless steel sculpture, created in the shape of four curved film strips, features a media screen on the front skin of the sculptures. This media skin of the sculpture features the artist’s interpretation of the film, “The Jazz Singer”, the first talkie created at the site, focusing on the tension between two generations and the analog past and the digital present and future.
