ISP // Internal Service Provider
A creation of the Los Angeles based duo Whits & Giggles, ISP is an interactive sculptural installation featured at CAM Raleigh. We worked with the artists’ schematic design and designed, detailed, and fabricated the installation. A commentary on sexuality in the modern age, the installation is interactive, immersive, and controversial.
Visitors were encouraged to enter the “confession booths” and record their darkest sexual secrets into the provided ipad. These recordings were streamed live into the restrooms of the museum, and recorded for use in later exhibitions.
CAM Raleigh wrote the following description of the work :
ISP (Internal Service Provider) is an immersive and interactive site installation that seeks to create a space for introspection and guidance in a challenging 21st Century world.
Whits & Giggles is a creative collaboration between Los Angeles-based artists Whitney Gibson and Shelley Holcomb. Seeking to normalize sexuality and speak candidly about sex from a female perspective, Gibson and Holcomb’s collaborative works explore topics of sensuality, gender, and identity. What began in 2014 as an opportunity to ‘girl talk’ using a public radio format, has led to an exploration of cultural norms, the human psyche, and an examination of all things sexual through the eyes of two contemporary women of color.
