RBA’s DATA space is the star in film by Assassi

World renown artist, Farshid Assassi is famous for creating dramatic photographs of buildings by the controversial architects like Morphosis, Roto Architects, Yazdani Studio and now he is changing his medium to motion pictures. RBA was fortunate enough to have Mr. Assassi make a short film about the DATA office space that houses US Data Company located in Los Angles, CA and Omaha, NE. “The film captures the three dimensional quality of Brown’s architecture with motion pictures that could never be explained with still photography,” said Assassi. View the film.

RBA’s “Rebar” sculpture is installed in Leahy Mall

Randy Brown was selected as one of the 13 artists/architects to create steel benches for the public art project entitled Take a Seat.  The piece is located on 14th street directly across from the library.  Walkers and drivers have been doing double takes since it was installed.  Is it art or is it a bench? Or is it a road construction project run amuck?  That is exactly the questions Brown wanted to raise with this most recent site specific piece.  “We wanted the piece to be urban, to be rough, to be handmade – not something that looks like it came from a store catalog.  It is graffiti proof and vandal proof by its very design.  It also is multifunction, with many places to sit, lean, chain a bike to or have a stretch as the joggers run by.” said Brown.  The “rebar” sculpture is a permanent installation given to the City of Omaha.
