Axis Index is an immersive installation combining sculpture and drawing to transform the architecture of the gallery through physical and visual methods. Consisting of tape drawings on existing gallery walls and custom fabricated foam core planar surfaces, the sculptural forms will emerge from the gallery walls and extend to the floor and rafters of the space, altering the shape of the room.
The drawings respond to the Suyama Space architecture, the surrounding urban landscape, and the additional constructed facades themselves. The work expands upon the language of mapping to create a dynamic experience that destabilizes perception, challenges physical boundaries, and manipulates illusionistic perspectives. The installation can be seen as a super-blueprint: one that explores the use of multiple viewpoints, sight lines, and intimate opportunities for viewer discovery throughout the space.
