Office Baroque

Homage to Gordon Matta Clark
Department Of Design The Ohio State University
Project By Clint Zehner
Critic Gabriel Esquivel
Office Baroque, Inspired by overlapping teacup rings left on a drawing, the carving was organized around two semicircles that arced rhythmically through the floors, creating a rowboat shape at their intersection, the idea was to take the geometry that Matta Clark used and take it to a next digital level introducing a new type of topological geometry. Matta-Clark described the piece as “a walk through a panoramic arabesque.“ This concept led to the production of a high tech highly sensual atmosphere. The idea was to develop a specific digital technique based on Matta Clark's premises.
