Low Relief

Carnegie Museum of Art | Pittsburgh, PA USA

As an academic studio situated in a museum, Low Relief explores material cultures of architectural deceit through historical research, hands-on material play, and blending physical plaster artifacts with hybrid media forms to augment viewer experience and perception. Our group was forced to think about design communication through the lens of exhibit design, and to continually process work for public dissemination.  Constantly having to curate our work to appeal to all ages, and with public interaction in mind, the studio was constantly “on display” and having to maintain work throughout all hours of the museum and during special public events, enabling us to experiment with presentation, exhibition, celebration, and interaction through gallery design.
