We finally installed the modular map project yesterday afternoon, and it’s now on display for anyone who walks through Davis. It looked very minimal in the daylight, almost easy to miss, but at night the paper construction gets a little more interesting. Here’s some photos from last night:
The installation will be on view only through July 30th, so make sure to check it out in the next couple weeks!
The installation goes up on Friday morning. I’ll be sure to post photos!
UPDATE: We’ve decided to postpone the installation until Tuesday (partially because it’s a LOT more work on my end than I anticipated!). It’ll be up from July 10 –
August 3 July 30th, and during ArtBeat, which is July 21st.
UPDATE 2: I showed a segment of the installation in an art crit meetup last night and I’m excited about how it looked all together. Here’s a photo:
I also got a lot of great feedback about it. It hadn’t occurred to me, even with the dimensional “folded” shape, that they look like an animation of paper folding itself (especially since these particular pieces are all a similar size), and that the shape could refer to paper road maps as well as topography.
And here they are installed in the exhibition:
