Collapse Construction

An installation workshop at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, 'Collapse Construction' is a toolkit for large-scale creative-play comprised of cardboard tubes and zip-ties.  Multi-generational participants both younger and older collaborate on structural shapes  individually and then collectively, aggregating their work into an emergent sculpture stacked-up beyond the museum's courtyard mezzanines.  Upon completion, the temporary sculpture is immediately and eagerly pulled down by the very hands that made it - crashing to the ground, then, built-up again, in a creative cycle of collapse and construction.
