About Me 個人簡介:
Brian Goggin is a multi-disciplinary artist utilizing non-traditional locations and wide-ranging materials to create an interaction with the environment through sculpture, public artwork and museum and gallery installations.

He first attracted national recognition in 1997 with Defenestration, an NEA-funded site-specific sculptural mural on a dilapidated building in San Francisco. Defenestration was an unofficial San Francisco landmark for seventeen years until the building was razed to make way for new housing. Recent works include Caruso’s Dream (2014), a canopy of angled and overlapping glass and steel pianos held aloft along the frontage of a residential apartment building; and The Language of the Birds (2008), an illuminated flock of translucent, suspended open books with bindings positioned to simulate the wings of birds in flight. At night, the books act as fluctuating lanterns lit by internal solar-powered LED lights. Words, taken from books relevant to the site, are scattered and embedded in the plaza as if the words have fallen from the pages above.

Other commissions include Speechless for the Lafayette Public Library, Labyrinth for Yahoo! in Sunnyvale, Samson for the Sacramento International Airport, Traffic of Ideas for the Seattle Arts Commission, and Herd Morality for Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Goggin studied literature and fine art at Cambridge University in England and San Francisco State University. He has completed artist residencies at Djerassi Foundation, Stanford, Bay Area Discovery Museum, LEAP and Project Artaud. He lives and works in San Francisco, California.
