ECOR® AS ART – ECOR debuts in LOSTinLA major art exhibition
San Diego, California – Noble Environmental Technologies (NET), a leading sustainable materials developer and manufacturer of ECOR®, has featured its HoneyCor™ product in Vincent Lamouroux’s art installation in the LOST (in LA) major art exhibition of International Contemporary and Modern Art. The exhibit is being held at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park, 4800 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles. The show runs from December 1, 2012 through January 27, 2013. Hours are Thursday through Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information about ECOR products call 866.417.5518
HoneyCOR is 100 percent USDA Certified bio-based and made with 100 percent cellulose fibers including post consumer paper, forest wood and agricultural raw material sources. ECOR contains no toxic additives or adhesives.
“This art exhibition was inspired by the hit television series “LOST” and like the show ECOR bridges the gap between past, present and future,” Robert Noble, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Although ECOR does not reside in a fictional universe, sometimes it acts as a supernatural phenomenon.”
Artist Vincent Lamouroux and architect Francois Perrin collaborated with NET to use sustainable products in their art. “When Francois and I discovered ECOR we knew that if we created our vision out of a green material we could also represent the futuristic element of the show,” said Lamouroux. “The result was a dramatic and completely sustainable piece of art.”
Furthermore, Lamouroux and Perrin found the material to be structurally strong and sound which was critical to their piece. The art, pictured above, was interwoven and suspended. A less tolerant material would not have been able to withstand the installation. “We worked through a number of different challenges with fabrication requirements and a complicated installation to realize Vincent’s design vision,” said Jim Torti, Ph.D., President and Chief Operating Officer. “The result was tremendous.”
LOST (in LA) provides an innovative dialogue between Los Angeles artists and French artists. Layers of time and space appear to be interlaced together a top a hill hidden in the middle of Los Angeles. The installation is presented by France Los Angeles Exchange (FLAX), curator Marc-Olivier Wahler, former director of Palais de Tokyo, and in partnership with Paris and the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA).
