These sculptures are laser-cut acrylic shapes mounted in drywall panels. Although their physical characteristics resemble architectural elevations, the underlying form for each monochromatic sculpture originates in a Google Maps search– a similar process to my “Invisible Cities” sculptures.
Rather than an inquiry into the map of a known place or address, these search requests ask Google to return a state of mind or a poetical construct rather than a conventional street address. Although I ask for the location of “the place where you always turn right”, “the place where craziness counts”, “the place where everything is always alright”, I typically receive locations that are banal and unremarkable.
These particular sculptures were a commission for the office of a therapist who specializes in child psychology. The kids seem to dig it!
