|Anonymous Studio Installs "Alexandria" at Southern Polytechnic State University|
Anonymous Studio, Alexandria.
ATLANTA, GA.- Alexandria is a project, designed and fabricated, by Anonymous Studio. Southern Polytechnic State University commissions Alexandria, an architecture/art/sculptural installation from Anonymous Studio placed in the Architecture Gallery on campus through December 15, 2010. Young Architects Forum opens its biannual exhibition of young professional work SUMMER SALON 2010 with the opening reception for ALEXANDRIA by Anonymous Studio.
A SALON is a gathering of stimulating people of quality under the roof of an inspiring hostess or host, partly to amuse one another and partly to refine their taste and increase their knowledge through conversation and readings.
The YAF SUMMER SALONS are an uninhibited presentation of creative work from students and young professionals on contemporary fringes of the design fields. The exhibition of projects intends to initiate communal conversations in attempts to cross pollinate the design communities and the society at large. The Salon showcases contemporary talent from all patrons of the design field, [architecture, art, fashion, graphic, product etc
Anonymous Studio seeks to employ digital fabrication techniques and responsive conditions to create a physically and discursively interactive installation called ALEXANDRIA. They utilize a simple conical figure emphasizing its place in the room and transitioning from a canopy system into an object in the space.
Hovering inches from the floor, ALEXANDRIA suspends itself in the space and refuse to acknowledge its relationship with the ground. The symbolic disillusionment with the political datum of the ground relinquishes the installation from prescriptive idealizations. ALEXANDRIAs canopy will not be tainted by agendas but will be appropriated but those who are most likely to contribute to it.
ALEXANRIA is a recursive element meant to become a repository of current work occurring at SPSU. Each panel of the surface is intentionally documented and easily producible in order to allow the students to participate in the layering of their projects onto the frame of ALEXANDRIA. It will be a place of storing and retrieving the ongoing studio work that occur concurrent with its lifespan.
Upon entering into the space, the surface is fully opaque. This lends itself to the presentation of student work. As you transition to the far side of the piece, the work of the student fades and the work of the artist appears. The increased opacity, thinner panel coverage, allows the viewer to see the paneled surface behind the students work and creates two surfaces, the surface of the exterior screen element and the reverse surface of the opaque presentation area. This internal/external dilemma is produced with its internality prohibited from occupation, creating an imagined space of occupation surrounded by the amassed knowledge of the higher education system.
