Constructing 30º

There were many facets to constructing 30º at SiTE:LAB’s booth at Untitled in Miami Beach. First, we began with cutting a hole in the floor (not quite as hazardous as cutting a hole in the roof) to expose the tent structure and sand below. We laid the first grid out and then inserted the wooden anchors that would serve as the framework for 30º into the sand. From there, and with the help of Paul Amenta, Bob Rogers, and the students, Lydia Boda, Erin Dumond, Jacob Hanson, Jacob Kapusta and Nathan McCallum, we continued to erect the grid on the angle until it reached 25 feet in height.

The KCAD Students Prep for Miami

With the help of Paul Amenta, his class at Kendall College of Art and Design and SiTE:LAB, we were able to prepare the wooden 1.25 x 1.25’s before heading down to Miami. The students, Lydia Boda, Erin Dumond, Jacob Hanson, Jacob Kapusta and Nathan McCallum, cut, planed, sanded and painted the pieces at SiTE:LAB’s temporary headquarters at 54 Jefferson – the former public museum where I created Habitat in 2012 – in Grand Rapids. (You’ll see Mark Dean Veca’s artwork on the floor beneath them.)

A huge thank you to Lin Yan, Yan Gulino, and Kegang Lian for inviting me to be a part of this exhibition.
