Layer: A Loose Horizon

Continuing in the tradition of artists who have integrated the PMCA building into their exhibition, innovative art collaborative Layer that will occupy both the Project Room and the museum lobby, culminating in an impressive sculptural installation reaching across the museum’s outer façade. While software and digital fabrication have become indispensible elements of architectural design, enabling greater complexity of forms, the artists of Layer—Lisa Little and Emily White—challenge the ability of these tools to render environments that truly engage the visitor. By combining a computational approach with a perceptual one, the artists create a physically engrossing and intellectually stimulating spatial construction. The resulting project represents just one instance in a series of possible permutations. Sketches and early digital iterations of the piece will also be on view in the Project Room, revealing the artists’ process.
