Sculpture & Mapping Projects

The mapping model illustrates the location of billboards in Echo Park and the perspectival cones of vision that occur between the viewer on the street and the billboard. The billboards act as a superstructure of visuality, cantilevering over the city that are both look and are looked at. The subsequent sculpture generated by this mapping exercise explores issues of billboard media, visuality and power in the city.
