The students of Professor Karen Lange at California's Cal Poly San Luis Obispo College of Architecture and Environmental Design have shared with us a video of their recent thesis book show installaton, White.
Project Description from the Students:
White is the Studio 400 thesis book show installaton. This surface was designed, developed, and installed by Professor Karen Lange’s students as a showcase for the first drafts of the studio’s thesis books. Working in a collaborative manner, we obtained enough material to design an affective environment that will fill our gallery - in this case 80,000 square feet of plastic sheeting. Then the material must be worked by all 40 hands in order to build the environment - in this case loomed into a malleable surface. And then the installation - 4 days of building, looming, crocheting, stapling, bending, and tying. The result was a plastic surface to be experienced above and below, a comfortable net in which to read.
