“PIXELATED: SCULPTURE BY MIKE WHITING” AT THE DENVER BOTANIC GARDENS
Through September 23, 2018, visitors to the Denver Botanic Gardens have the opportunity to contemplate two very different worlds: the cultivated setting of a public garden and the digital environment of video games.
With “Pixelated: Sculpture by Mike Whiting,” brightly colored metal sculptures with the pixelated aesthetic of vintage 8-bit video games like Pac-Man are among the gardens’ landscapes.
“The contrast of the sculptures’ geometric and man-made materials can seem at odds with the gardens,” Whiting says of works including the bright-green, 7-foot-tall Cactus and giant purple Cathead, “but they are connected in the dialogue about the representation of nature.”
