This project is a sixteen foot high inhabitable pavilion which will be exhibited in The New Sculpturalism show at the MoCA Geffen Contemporary in Los Angeles, opening June 1, 2013. It was chosen in an invited competition held by the Museum last summer, and now the heat is on to realize it.
The project is a study of surface-to-volume transformations, where mass is achieved by pushing into a surface like a fist through a rubber sheet. In this case, chunky objects are pushed into exterior skins, creating volumetric effects on the interior. The perimeter edges of the three components of the piece are razor-thin, creating visual tension between the realms of 2-D/flat and 3-D/massive.
