Study for a Venture Piece
1980 | New York City
Painted and Incised Sheet Metal | H: 6/15 W: 20/51 D: 3/8 (in/cm)

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.
