AT OWNERS RISK is a site-specific installation that responds to the current structure and function of Suyama Space, as an architectural firm and gallery, while also reflecting on its history as an auto body shop and livery stable. By applying simple design approaches, seemingly obvious materials and colors are repurposed to create a platform in which the past and present collide.
