Nolan Love is a Bay Area visual artist and web entrepreneur. Originally from NH, Love came to SF in 1999 by way of a stint in the Peace Corps in Guinea, West Africa. This piece - a mosaic portrait of a baby born to his host family in Guinea - renders a subject from the rural, low-tech, developing world using high-tech virtual tools and urban materials. Love is interested in the emergent properties of ordered systems, the different meanings that exist at different scales, and the tension between them. Balancing this order are impermanence and entropy, achieved here with movable magnets.
Meet Nolan and check his work at the “Art by Code” Gallery Opening the same evening of the CODAME FASHION+MUSIC Event.
