Study for a Venture Piece
A number of small “Venture Studies,” intended as mock-ups for large public wall installations, were made in the early 1980s. A blank wall in a lobby setting, usually in the garment center, would be photographed, and a study made for that space. Only one study, The PS 1 Piece, would later materialized as an installation. Most lobby blank walls in commercial buildings were intended as advertising spaces, and the idea never got any traction.
