Development, Baltimore Clayworks, 2010
Development, sited at Baltimore Clayworks, denies the context of the gallery by framing out the space with plywood and 2x4s. This denial mimics the tendency of developers to construct new projects without taking into consideration the ethos of a neighborhood. The viewer enters this representation of a construction site observing both a cityscape in miniature and a series of bollards. The cityscape is located on a work table, inviting the viewer to be their own urban planner navigating issues of red lining and eminent domain. The bollards are placed on top of deconstructed pallets to include the development projects of inner city harbors in the master plan of cities.
