Art:21 - Iigo Manglano-Ovalle

art:21

2007

Iigo Manglano-Ovalle's film Oppenheimer, 2003, and mural Time, 2003, installed at the Rochester Art Center, Minnesota. Iigo Manglano-Ovalle's technologically sophisticated works use natural forms such as clouds, icebergs, and DNA as metaphors for understanding social issues such as immigration, gun violence, and human cloning. The artist's strategy of representing nature through information leads to an investigation of the underlying forces that shape the planet as well as points of human interaction and interference with the environment.

Iigo Manglano-Ovalle is featured in the Season 4 (2007) episode Ecology of the Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century television series on PBS.
