Essentials: Sober Industries
Unlike what the name suggests, the works of Sober Industries is far from sober. Formed in 2009, the art collective builds from an array of ideas and concepts, no matter how farfetched, in the the creation of dynamic art installations. Constantly adding new dimensions to their work, traditional design techniques are used alongside project mapping tools to create deeper narratives. For their most recent efforts, Sober Industries were invited to participate at the Converse Clash Wall project in Amsterdam. Transforming a canal house into a giant art piece, Sober Industries worked alongside Dutch artists TelmoMiel, Karski, Does, Rutger Termolen, Zedz, Onno Poeisz and Zender on a slew of mixed media pieces. For our latest Essentials, we see the tools needed for Sober Industries to create two giant battling robots.
