Architects’ Week 2011

Canvas | Tulane University, New Orleans, LA
Tulane Architects’ Week | Built Installation

The installation for Tulane University’s annual Architects’ Week sought to create a place of pause out of a series of desire paths.   The 10 objects, each composed of two triangular canvases, provided surfaces for writing, drawing and painting to passerby, encouraging interaction over the installation’s duration.  By interacting with the canvases pedestrians transformed the pristine white sails into layered histories of images and text that recorded their participation.

The installation was designed to permit both quick assembly from a minimum number of components and full recyclability.  After the installation the 20 triangular canvases were distributed among the group members as souvenirs of the event.
