ShoeboxLA is pleased to present Los Ange les artist Michael Blasi. Blasi's Soundsystem playfull y explores the relationship between audio and visual\, the concrete and abs tract\, where hard wiring and electric pulses meet soft metaphor and symbol ic form. Blasi employs a variety of music including Somali funk\, Egyptian jazz\, and Jamaican dub over a recycled computer speaker contraption within the gallery\, thus making it an acoustic chamber. His mountain-like forms and colorful spheres act as reservoirs of potential musical energy\, physic al manifestations of the signals that travel to speakers through wires and circuitry\, across an array of forms that resemble a circuit board.< /p>\n

Originally from Los Angeles\, Michael Blasi received his BFA from Purchase College\, New York\; he returned here in the late ‘90s\, whe re he has been teaching and making art.

\n

ShoeboxLA giv es Los Angeles artists an opportunity to do one-day\, site-specific exhibitions outside the traditional gallery setting. Founders Sophia Allison and Paul W. Evans provide an intimate space that challenges artist s' and viewers' expectations of size and scale. Locations change for each s how but the space remains the same.
