It Should Always Be This Way

22. Adrian Blackwell (Toronto), Circles Describing Spheres

June 2 - 5, 2014
 
University of Waterloo Art Gallery, East Campus Hall, 263 Phillip Street, Waterloo.
 
Curated by Ivan Jurakic and Bojana Videkanic
 
Circles Describing Spheres is a structure composed of a series of nested plywood circles each wide enough to sit on. Inspired by the anarchist meeting circle, an ordering device for non-hierarchical discussion, and the armillary sphere, an ancient Chinese and Greek device used to describe the movements of heavenly bodies, the circles can be rotated to form different seating spaces: forum, round table, ziggurat. During the course of the week, the sculpture will be reconfigured and used as a site to generate conversations.
