Hernan Diaz Alonso introduces Christian Moeller as an artist, architect and founder of UCLA’s Design Media Arts program. Moeller begins by talking about his background and how he shifted from architecture to other disciplines. Moeller presents robotic artwork, visual and sonic installations, and art for airports and libraries. He describes the whole process of development from concept to execution, often including anecdotes about the clients and fabrication.
Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo’s Lead Pencil Studio is an interdisciplinary practice with a focus on art installations, and architecture projects. While their interdisciplinary cross-pollination has earned them awards, and recognition, Han declares that their work in architecture and art are separate. Han draws a clear distinction between the two, their art is essentially “architecture without any of its function.” The spatial experience, as Mihalyo explains, is paramount, as opposed to seeing space as an object.
