To celebrate the opening of COLA 2019, experience a special performance of Katie Grinnan’s 5 Seconds of Dreaming, played by musicians Kozue Matsumoto and Eugene Moon.

After previous iterations at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery and Commonwealth and Council, Grinnan’s project culminates with this final version in COLA 2019. The undulating forms of these wooden sculptures are adapted from EEG diagrams recording the artist’s brain activity during sleep and are arranged to mirror the hemispheres of the brain. Milled using a CNC machine, the sculptures’ digital means of production stands in contrast to their tactile, canyon-like wooden surfaces. Grinnan stringed each wooden piece to produce an instrument designed to be tuned, played and interpreted by musicians, thus expressing the artist’s thoughts in musical form.
