Although it was a relatively short installation, I was lucky to have my friends and colleagues stop by the Bruce Museum to check in on the process of creating Grid Structure #1. Architectural photographer, Marc Lins came to visit the location with fashion photographer, Christian Anwander. Marc needed to figure out how to photograph the piece, checking how the light situation changed throughout the day. Enrique Tellez, a very good friend and collector from Mexico City was in town and visited with my wife Florencia Minniti. My dealer, Cristin Tierney, also came by to check in on my progress. I was so thrilled to have these people stop by to see the installation process and to have the opportunity to see how the work changed.
The approach to my newest site-specific installation is very different from previous projects. For this piece, I have created many small cubes with the intention of stacking them within the atrium of the Bruce Museum. As I mentioned in my previous post, there are a number of tests that had to be run in order to create the desired effect with the cubes. In this moment, I am testing how the different cubes interact with each other when stacked.
