Prologue

“Principal.” Graduate Thesis Exhibition, San Francisco Art Institute, The Old Mint, San Francisco, CA. 2014.

Prologue consists on a serie of site-specific  experiments for the building of the Old Mint in San Francisco, CA. The ideas of connectedness, presence and hiddenness are utilized to question the notions of space, temporality and experience. This project stages real, fictional and simulated elements occurring at the bilding in simultaneity. For this purpose I have divided the spaces of the building into two categories: the unoccupied areas, where the visitors can’t access, and the public or exhibition space. All the experiments reference or take place in the unoccupied spaces, while the exhibition room becomes an image inside an image.
