a Catalog of Difference
by Andrew Lucia
09.29.17 - 10.29.17


A Catalog of Difference is a study of change across material and perceptual environments, calling attention to those differences which make a difference. Each study in this catalog is a registration of change within a given environment, a shorthand of its character. With this collection, designer and artist Andrew Lucia generates an ongoing catalog of theoretical objects that have been figured from the ambient light and curvature specific to their environments of origin. Collectively, A Catalog of Difference speculates on the role of structured ambient light as an active agent and dynamic force in the production of form. The research conducted for this exhibition was undertaken and supported through the Cass Gilbert Visiting Fellowship in the School of Architecture, University of Minnesota.
