art + public art design

The following samples a range of art production, from Ideal X’s own 2D and 3D works to public art design for other artists. Always present is the dynamics of perception related to a work’s material and spatial construction. The design work for other artists is under their authorship, not Ideal X. Highlighted here are some of the means, methods, and material details of our design contributions. Links to an artist’s work accompany their specific work.
