We are pleased to present David Roy's new sculpture, Danger Noodle V w/ LS 98, making its debut at The Armory Off-Site at the US Open. Roy continues to draw on the visual language of rocket science through their use of durable materials common to the aerospace industry, such as fiberglass, resin, and Kevlar. With the potential to be fully functioning, the rocket is displayed on its launch pad.
Roy’s work is guided by the declaration that art is a practice of freedom inseparable from everyday life. Roy founded BLACKNASA, a space agency aimed to teach rocketry and the ideals of space exploration to underrepresented youth groups. Animated by Roy’s sculptural practice, BLACKNASA views rocketry as a science, a creative practice, and a universal language.
