Here And Now’s Artist, Kati Vilim
Kati Vilim solo sight specific public piece, “Here and Now” can be viewed 24/7: “We are living in very special times of the human history. Each of us are experiencing life while sharing the same time and space on our planet. The way we are creating our reality as an internal experience is based on how we are dealing with space and time in its physicality and as a cultural experience.
Do we feel connected? How are we doing? How do we really feel?
Creating an internal dialogue between the art piece and the public, helps contemplation while looking at the colorful lights in the windows in the darkness of the night.
When the artwork helps to create an internal dialogue between the art piece and the public – Here and Now – magic can happen!”

Future Fruit, mixed media, dimensions variable. 2019
FUTURE FRUIT is what’s to come, shiny, new, and sparkling. It is the poison we will happily eat, stand in line waiting for, and fight over the scraps. It is that which we covet, and that which we will never attain. It is the fruit of tomorrow.
The installation was borne of a desire to leave behind heavy content and meaning, to make something purely beautiful and mesmerizing. The work was inspired by a small handful of fictional stories, extracted from asides and slight mentions. The two framing sources are from Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut Jr and Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.
