The Image, The Object, The Table
A faculty exhibition that comprises three separate collections of heterogeneous artifacts: images that inspire and trigger the work of each faculty member; design objects that embody each faculty member’s working methods and approaches; and a single table spread with diverse artifacts created and curated by each faculty member.
The images collected in this exhibition are important artifacts of inspiration, memory, intent, and provocation. Faculty members submitted two images for the show, each of which is meant to reveal a way of making and simultaneously represent the variety of work and expertise that our school embodies and encourages.
The construction of small design objects or prototypes has always been an important process in the design and representation of architecture. Each of the white-colored objects in this exhibition has been produced by individual faculty members and is meant to be an exploration of a single idea in their work.
The table is laid out as a singular, continuous surface of creative making, with plots or sections curated by each faculty member consisting of the products of their own architectural creativity and labor. The images and the objects are numbered and connect back to each participant’s plot or section on the table. Taken all together, the exhibition reveals the diverse points of view that define and link together to form the faculty of Syracuse Architecture.
