Articles referencing Edwin Schlossberg: Dream Cube 2010 World Expo Pavilion

Edwin Schlossberg started his career as an artist and a poet.

Over the last 50 years Edwin Schlossberg has incorporated words and images to create art through unconventional methods. through the use of these words and images he has been able to create visual and poetic worlds in his art.

Edwin Schlossberg developed as an artist during the 1960s in New York, as a member of its dynamic art scene. Despite working with and befriending several of the most famous artists of that era – Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and James Rosenquist – Schlossberg’s style has always been his own. While his contemporaries played with words as form, Schlossberg insisted on their meaning, creating poetry with a distinct visual style. Some of his earliest works were poems written on a typewriter on aluminum foil – he created a new application for this everyday material whose artistic value now seems obvious.

Edwin Schlossberg’s approach has always been inventive: he received Columbia University’s first combined doctorate (in Physics and English & American Literature), an accomplishment which has enabled him to write poetry and create art on subjects which might intimidate others: neuronal imaging, the earth from above, gravity, systems mapping and other subjects. By making them visual, he has made them legible outside of the technologic and scientific realm.

Major projects that he has been involved in include:

  • The Statue of Liberty Museum
  • Mount Fuji World Heritage Center
  • Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration
  • Barclays Media Experience
  • Columbia Center
  • 300 N Wacker Drive
