Progress Report #3 Class of 2017 Installation

BLACKHOLE will consist of 60 boxes of 3 different sizes, extruded from or recessed into two very long and thick walls that face one another. The entire installation will be painted black with illuminated, projecting box faces, hence the new name “BLACKHOLE.”




2017 Architecture/Landscape/Interiors graduating seniors (Adel Aleali, Erim Ayhan, Michael Chen, Tanner Geertsen, Ibrahim Ghulam, Adam Harris, Maegan Iamjan, Sarah Ng, and Tommy Peng) started fabricating BLACKHOLE on Tuesday, March 28. They cut all of the box sides, tops, and bottoms, and moved steel studs and tracks into the building.
