CHICAGO, IL.- Elmhurst Art Museum presents the world premiere of Chicago-based artist David Wallace Haskins’ Skycube outside the Museum now through the spring of 2016. A three-ton construction of steel, glass and far infrared light film, Haskins’ 8 x 8 x 8 foot Skycube brings the full vertical dimension of the sky down to the pictorial plane. Seen at eye level through a square aperture cut into the white steel cube, the moving image of the sky is not a digital projection or display—it is the actual three-dimensional sky. Bridging sculpture, architecture and painting, the Skycube is the first public exhibition of Haskins’ groundbreaking work.

During the day, atmospheric changes move across the Skycube’s exterior aperture like a living painting continually recreating itself. Walking up to the opening reveals an interior 8 x 8 foot wall appearing as an immersive three-dimensional mural of the sky. In the evening, the Skycube moves through endless hues of blue until a deep black square emerges, slowly revealing a composition of moving stars and planets.

Elmhurst Art Museum’s presentation of the Skycube runs now through the spring of 2016, when a solo exhibition of Haskins’ interactive work will open at the Museum. EAM is located just 14 miles west of downtown Chicago and one block from the Elmhurst Metra station.

“Elmhurst Art Museum is very pleased to debut David Wallace Haskins’ monumental Skycube,” says the Museum’s Chief Curator Staci Boris. “Not only is it an extraordinary project for its poetry, precision and its great ambition to represent the ethereal void, but David lives and works in Elmhurst. It’s a pleasure to support such an intelligent, hard-working and very local artist.”

An Elmhurst native, artist David Wallace Haskins conducts experiments and explorations with light, space, time and sound. While working with experts in psychology, ecology, physics and philosophy, Haskins leads a core team of likeminded artists and technicians to develop and evolve these experiments into innovative installations, sculptures and events.
