Project Room

Nicolas Lobo:
Miramar substation/EMF displacement

In the project room, Miami-based Nicolas D. Lobo will produce Miramar substation/EMF displacement, a model of the electromagnetic field generated by the power substation adjacent to Locust Projects. Following recent projects that have sought to give physical form to “immaterial” things like the disastrous flight pattern of ValuJet 592, Miramar Substation continues to trade in the spectral underside of the real. Giving a computer model physical dimension and using the exhibition space as its starting point, the model will be built on site as skillfully as possible and using humble materials usually associate with the world of garage engineers and grandpa technology. A graduate of Cooper Union, Lobo has exhibited at North Miami MoCA, Placemaker Gallery, and Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, among other places.
