Via (Southern Exposure, San Francisco)

The installation VIA explores the industrial and the personal, how these two worlds are simultaneously in tandem and opposition. The title “via” references its two definitions: a plated hole in a circuit board that allows information to pass from one layer of the board to another, and the preposition “by a route that touches or passes through; by way of.” Each sculpture examines a system of color–from video games to Martha Stewart’s color charts at Kmart to the afternoon sky. Western Sky/ The Sky Color of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle at 4 p.m., October 23-29th is based on phone interviews with residents in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle about the sky color at 4 p.m. every day for a week. In the Diptych Via/ Navajo White to Tusk Tusk, Moonlight Sonata to Blue Waltz, Delicate Yellow to Celandine, with Via/ Lee, Mom, Chris, Liz, Jessica and Lisa’s least favorite color, the New Hampshire sky color at 4 p.m. described by Mom over the phone, the color of my morning pee I create my own system for determining color, matching hardware store paint chips with my own version of those paint chips.
