Educated as an engineer, Eduardo Coimbra is best known for his site-specific, mixed-media architectural installations. “[My] work is related to space in a broader sense, many times forcing the boundaries between interiors and exteriors of art spaces,” he has said, “but my main interest is to provoke people right where they live, where they move.” Often inviting audience participation, Coimbra’s works include surreal, constructed landscapes and imaginative, eco-friendly maquettes made from small household objects, florescent lights, prints, and construction-grade wood, steel, and iron.
