Activating the Void:
Scaffolding at Superman Building
Proposal for Activating the scaffolding system located at the the Industrial National Bank Building, known as The Superman Building, in downtown Providence. The idea for this installation was to locate a void in the city and activate it by using exhibit design techniques. The proposal included two design directions. First, I used my body proportions to develop geometric compositions that are applied to the surface of the scaffolding structures. The second proposal looks at the scaffolding system as an opportunity to connect Providence locals with the city’s folklore. I created a series of comic strips panels along the scaffolding system to evoke the city spirit of connecting the hero with it’s architecture.
All this long human story, most passionate and tragic in the living, was but an unimportant, a seemingly barren and negligible effort, lasting only for a few moments in the life of the galaxy.
