toki is the name given to an ongoing collaborative effort between artist/architecture duo toluwalase rufai and khai grubbs. their collective works aim to alter the perception of public spaces through establishment of rhythm, movement, transparency, and ephemerality. toki’s latest series, ‘synth’, is the result of an impulsive desire to express the sounds of music in three dimensions.
primarily using yarn, and occasionally nails and wood, the large installations represent sounds through color and implied movement by form. two pieces have been created thus far, each taking place in the decaying atmosphere of an abandoned washington D.C. building. the various spaces are integral to the design, and are responsible for many decisions throughout the creative process. toki plans to continue the ‘synth’ series in the larger D.C. area.
