Exhibition

Description

Designed and constructed a display system for an architectural photography exhibition and curated the exhibit. The display system has since been adopted as a permanent fixture in the NDSU Art & Architecture building (Renaissance Hall).

The display system was designed using common industrial materials with the goals of being mounted without physically being attached to the building and to allow the exhibit to ‘float’ in front of the masonry wall. The display utilizes friction and compression to wedge the frame between pilasters in the corridor. Nylon cord is strung, at high tension, across the frame at regular intervals. The result is an exhibit with maximum visual impact and minimal interference with the century-old building.
