Public Project with Jane Kim:
This project has been intriguing visitors. A drawing of a world map is on the wall with hand cut-outs across the map in various shades of blue & grey. Everyday at noon Jane Kim mixes paint the color of the sky on paper that visitors use to create their hand cut-out. It is fascinating because when people place their hand on the map they pause and think, “How does one define origin?” The artist leaves it open interpretation for the visitor.
Jane’s public project will continue during her whole residency. This post will be updated with photos through the rest of the month so you can see it growing! (all photos are in order by date.)
Where would you place your origin?
