GRANDE RONDE, FORGOTTEN SPACE, B-CORP AND THE FUTURE - SCULPTURES FOR THE PORTLAND STATE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
The sculptures for the atrium makes typologies of everyday consumer items that are often produced in areas of scarcity and sold to areas of abundance, an imbalance often hidden to consumers. One hundred years ago, a Willamette Valley farmer could sell a meteorite on his property – an object of religious significance sacred to the Native people in his community – without repercussion. Today we have a very different understanding of ethics, human rights and trade which affects the business community as much as any other profession. The floors combine to form a pictographic network, - flattened and standardized as in digital interfaces - to stand in for people and communities as well as the goods they produce and consume.
