Please join me for the opening of my latest public project, Urban Surface Map – EscapeVines in conjunction with the Axis Alley public art show on Sunday, October 18th from 2-6pm. USM-EscapeVines is an angular network of colorful lines that playfully follow the path of the fire escape as they mimic the ascendant vines growing up the rear facade of 2108 N. Calvert Street. Participants who climb the fire escape will be welcomed with a close-up of the installation as well as fantastic views of the cityscape!
Urban Surface Map – EscapeVines, October 2009, Baltimore, MD. Variable dimensions, inverted marking paint along fire escape. Installation view.
Symphony Terrace Vista is a continuation of the New Public Sites installation series where I invite participants to explore invisible or unseen public spaces. For NPS-STV I set up neon pink “x”s leading people to the circular, landscape brick terrace structure in front the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra building at Preston Street and Park Avenue. After climbing the odd HVAC structure, one finds three yellow strips of tape that both orient the viewer and frame a fantastic cityscape vista.
This installation was a part of the Wandering: You Are Here show at MICA’s Middendorf gallery that ran December 3-10, 2008.
