PROJECT SPACE | Joe Penrod
City explorer Joe Penrod, uses ordinary blue painters tape to document every day icons of the urban landscape - traffic cones, stop signs, benches, garbage cans and ladders, to name a few. For this installation in Swarm's project space, he plans to build a column of traffic cones in reference to Constantin Brancusi's "Endless Column." His tape shadows mimic shadows cast by the sun, yet the bright blue contrasts to what our eyes expect to see, creating a beautiful and surreal illusion.
If you are in the Bay Area I hope to see you there.
