Ecto-Paraprism is a flexible crystalline facade that feeds off the existing core of AIA PDX. The installation explores transparency, reflection and ownership in a dynamic relationship between host architecture and parasitic intervention. Ecto-Paraprism redefines and dominates an existing structural facade to provide a temporary and alternative visual orientation for AIA PDX. Exhibit opens First Thursday, October 4, open through October 31.
About the artist:
Jordan Tull explores the exchange between artwork, site, and viewer through sculpture and installation. Tull has produced site-specific sculpture responding to architectural settings throughout Portland, OR. His object-based sculptures explore structural and perceptual phenomenon through geometric abstraction and allusive metaphor. Tull’s current work advances for the development of new spatial languages experienced within the context of contemporary architecture and sculptural discourse. Tull’s works aim to establish an alternative perceptual approach to spatial applications through the employment of computer-aided fabrication technology and space manipulation.
