Site of Spire

As much of my work is site-specific, I spend a lot of time in the space to get a sense of its capacity and potential (as well as taking photos and measurements as a base for my renderings and scale models).

Prior to envisioning Spire, I traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan, to check out the site – an abandoned industrial building – that SiTE:LAB is sponsoring for ArtPrize. SiTE:LAB is a non profit that organizes temporary art exhibits in commercial and industrial buildings in Grand Rapids, Michigan and they have asked me to participate in their space for ArtPrize.

Here are some photos of the space where Spire will be installed:
