Merge at Weisman Art Museum
2011

« previous | 5 of 33 | next »

This piece was made of more than 350,000 aluminum strips of six different colors, two different finishes (matte & shiny), approximately 14,000 screws, and hot glue. Ranging in size from 1x7" to 2x10", the work was placed on the floor and three adjacent walls spanning over 3,000 square feet.

Merge was on display at the Weisman Art Museum as a part of an exhibition entitled "Sympathies" from October 2011 through May 2012. Curated by Diane Mullin, the Weisman Art Museum (WAM) commissioned contemporary artists to respond to work in its collection, inviting artists whose work seemed in some way sympathetc to aspects of the museum's collection. Merge was specifically commissioned to be in dialogue with the architecture of WAM, designed by Frank Gehry.

The work flooded the museum space with reflected light, creating a river of aluminum as a "drawing in space."
