As a student at the Southern California Institute of Architecture we are given the opportunity to work with any number of architects / firms through the school's gallery installation program. In the case of Blow X Blow, designed by Deegan-Day Design of Los Angeles, I worked on the fabrication and installation on site at Sci-Arc.


Excerpt from Exhibition Discussion

~ Blow x Blow stages a bout between two trends in exhibition: the claiming of gallery space by architects, and the ceding of that space to the ambient possibilities of new media. To chart this collision, techniques of cinematic projection and scripting are repurposed to spur new orders of spatial and structural sequencing, and new environments for communing with new art. The installation derives first from the filmic, rather than architectural, relationship between script and projection - the former usually serving as the template or pretext for filmmaking, and the latter its (increasingly historical) mode of delivery and final fruition. Projection precedes script in our equation, with the parameters of the projected image ‘cast’ in roles of formal generation. ~
