PIPA 2010 nominee.

Eduardo Coimbra is known for his site-specific, mixed-media installations, which vary from design-scale works (domestic ambiences and exhibition spaces) to participatory large public projects. In Coimbra’s early works, he transformed familiar household objects into art by using lights and electrical machines. Coimbra’s works encompass the surreal and imaginative, and consist of eco-friendly maquettes and constructed landscapes made using fluorescent lights, steel, and iron.
