suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
mike MCKAY + liz SWANSON: BIG PINK is a full-scale installation created for the entry to the Creative Cities Summit in Lexington Kentucky. The installation consists of over 500 hand-cut pieces of rigid insulation, stacked using no glue or fasteners. The stacked layers form a large undulating wall 16’ wide by 22’ high. Large apertures frame certain views to the city and allow for light to project into the space.
