Thanks to Untitled, we were able to leave 30º standing after the tent was being broken down. Although I didn’t imagine it from the outset, this was an important aspect for me in the range and depth of this project. It’s almost as if there were two projects encompassing 30º – the first being the installation within the context of the art fair, and the second being within the context of the skeleton of the tent. One can see from the following images that this change in environment radically changed the feeling of the piece. It was an important discovery for me in my work and something that I am always questioning and challenging with my site-specific installations.
Paul Amenta and Tom Clinton of SiTE:LAB invited me to be their featured artist for the Untitled Art Fair in Miami 2013. Untitled is located in a tent directly on the beach, so my idea – much like Spire – was to cut a hole in the floor and have my site-specific installation emerge from the sand below. The images of the scale model showcase the monochromatic color scheme that I envisioned for 30º. The title of the work comes from the angle of piece, which aligns perfectly with the angle of the tent.
