I was included in the Modular 22 project at Studio 22 in Berwyn, IL. Modular22 is a large-scale installation featuring work from over one hundred artists, designers and architects, displayed on interlocking wooden panels. Measuring over 8 feet tall and 25 feet long, the Modular22 project brings the infrastructure of a gallery display system to the foreground, treating it as equal to the artwork it’s used to display. The artwork was created by artists and designers from Berwyn, Chicago, and beyond.
I created two black and white panels for the installation, both comprised of image and text. My panels address the romantic perception vs the cold reality of the world, as expressed through our romanticism of stars, which are typically already dead by the time we wish on them.
