"Culmination Space 2009"
Margaret McInroe

  • Project Space 613 Allen Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

Culmination Space springs from the definition of culmination as a condition of gathering, accumulation and discovery. 

A consortium of bamboo, cotton and concrete blocks is arranged and in session - projecting future planning concepts and visions displayed in the form of paintings, drawings, assemblages and projections. The exhibition will include works and information related to the installation and will include a presentation of Culmnia (bambusa major multiplex) and the Concept for Urban Living Module.

A spatial rendering comprised of curved screens or “eyelashes” is assembled with bamboo, concrete blocks, paintings and seating made of rolled cotton denim insulation. The bamboo culms arc skyward and exist as organic, inverted telescopes for this integral study of landscape and architecture existing within layered dimensions. A large central panel displays a fusion of elements that inform and reflect the installation as if networking in an optimistic reweaving of the carpet that serves as both a blueprint and reflection of the city of Eudoxia in the novel Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino.

Discussions: Visitors are invited to present a portrait or description of optimal urban living scenarios.
