The Man's Army
by: Michael Ciulla & The Rave Knights (Alexandra Friedman, Nick Harris, John Jones) with support from Sin Cohen, Steven Platt, Lizzy Layne, Ryan Geist Bozajian & Ciulla Associates
from: Los Angeles, CA
year: 2019

The Man’s Army is 100 androgynous life-sized human figures standing in a 10×10 grid. Each figure has skin of white wax and a unique 3D printed face created by a point-cloud scan of real people. At night an internal LED creates a glow emanating from within. The body and face create a blank canvas for expression. Throughout the week the figures are customized, culminating in a transformative burn. The piece is a visual metaphor contemplating conformity through shared non-conformity. People, from a distance may appear homogeneous but once among them you see their individuality. Through shared experience burners are altered and stretched by the thoughts and intentions of one another and then transformed through an expression of impermanence.
