THE MODULAR VARIATIONS / gallery exhibition poster - 2013
The Modular22 project was designed to be rebuilt in an infinite number of variations. The original installation at the 22 studio perhaps served as the most effective permutation, running down the center of the gallery as a monolithic wall. After that exhibit was finished, Jessica and I had the opportunity to display the Modular22 project at a number of other locations, so we used each one as a chance to rearrange the installation and present the panels in a different way.
In early 2012, Eric Tucker, professor and curator at South Suburban College in southern Illinois, invited us to install Modular22 at the school's Lee Dulgar Gallery and talk to the students. We used the Modular22 panels to build two small installations, and this time we turned the panels inward, so that the outside of each installation was black and the artwork on the "front" of each of the panels was only visible in the intersections and gaps between the panels themselves. I also designed a poster advertising the exhibit, which turned the Modular22 sculpture into an oversized towering monolith.
