This book documents a mammoth two-part installation and related drawings, videos, and sculpture by Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo. Their work After transformed the Boise Art Museum's Sculpture Court and Garden into a construction / deconstruction zone. The terrain of the indoor work consisted of a gravel landscape and, floating above it, several fragments of a modern living room. Outside, a flourescent-lit billboard advertising the promise of modern living perched atop a pile of construction debris.
Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo are professional architects and artists who utilize unconventional architectural systems and new media to explore issues of spatial perception. They are the principals and founders of the Seattle architectural and installation art firm Lead Pencil Studio and the 2008 recipients of the Prix de Rome in architecture.
Gary Sangster was most recently executive director of the Headlands Center for the Arts in Marin County, California.
