Laumeier, Print and photography
An in-situ experience made to be seen ex-situ, the project recounts ten sculpture encounters from an afternoon stroll at the Laumeier Sculpture Park—an open-air museum in St. Louis filled with eclectic artworks by the likes of Ernest Trova, Jenny Holzer and Alexander Liberman. While most park-goers take in these sculptures from afar, this project chronicles an experience up-close.
For each sculpture, a photograph is taken and a rubbing of its surface is made on-site to obtain an authentic visual and tactile impression of the artwork.
Field assets are then compiled into individual cards that each holds the information of a single sculpture.
Companion fold-outs provide off-site viewers with further context of the experience and the locale.
