Have you experienced our latest immersive art experience: “Electric Sky Lounge”?
This new immersive, interactive art experience was created in collaboration with internationally renowned artist Neil Mendoza featuring his award-winning artwork “Disruptive Devices”.
You’re invited to interact with each work using a crank wheel that changes a virtual world. The result is a surprising and humorous interaction between the real and the digital worlds. 🦆🤚🐓🤚🐕
It’s often difficult to convey the energy, hard work, and dedication that our participating artists and Fairgrounds St. Pete team put into creating the work you get to now enjoy!
As with all of the artwork at @fairgroundsstpete, “Disruptive Devices” has a story”.
“I’m interested in expanding our culture’s perception of technology and what it can do and be,” said Artist Neil Mendoza. “Disruptive Devices explores themes of environmental sustainability and the impact of technology in our lives, through a surreal and playful lens.”

Neil Mendoza’s practice combines sculpture, electronics and software to bring inanimate objects and spaces to life. By combining found objects with technology in unexpected ways, the various elements of his work are viewed from a new perspective. Mendoza explores themes of the absurd, the humorous, the futile and the surreal. He has exhibited work and talked at conferences around the world, taught classes on art and technology at UCLA and Stanford and co-founded the art collective “is this good?”
