Have you experienced L O L yet? ✨ 💡
We have a difficult time conveying the energy, hard work, and dedication that our Fairgrounds St. Pete team and participating artists put into creating the work you get to now enjoy in our immersive exhibit!
Today we’re sharing some behind the scenes images of the work that went into creating L O L by artist Tess Oldfield.
As with all of the artwork at Fairgrounds St. Pete L O L has a story.

For her Fairgrounds St. Pete installation L O L, Tess used phonetic charts to create forms made inside of the mouth while pronouncing the letters “L” and “O”. This is an expansion of a formal vocabulary that she is currently working with in her practice. Comprised of over 200 ceramics, L O L is playful and humorous in personifying text often used in pop and tech culture. Arduino code is used to create rhythmic laughing patterns to evoke a high-spirited atmosphere and allude to laughter in the air.
