Aaron Axelrod’s “Bad Reception” Installation at the Skee Lodge

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Los Angeles-based artist Aaron Axelrod recently transformed the LA studio of DJ and well-known music business entrepreneur DJ Skee into a site-specific installation modeled after a retro analog television. Possibly the largest working analog TV, the installation at the Skee Lodge, as the studio is known, pays homage to graffiti culture and the rebelliousness that can come along with great talent. Mannequins outfitted like hooded graffiti artists climb up the structure and Axelrod’s tag-like signature is emblazoned at the bottom. The television screen flashes psychedelic images that illuminate the street. Titled “Bad Reception,” the project was commissioned to celebrate DJ Skee’s new television show, Skee Live, and will be on view through the end of the month. Check out a video of its making and some images of the completed installation below.
