DESCRIPTION: Blender Architecture was asked by
Philadelphia artist Amze Emmons to assist in designing a display
for his exhibition, titled Publisher! Publisher!. Emmons
collaborated with twenty publishers from around the
world, compiling a collection of their publications, ranging
from: high-end art magazines, newsprint pamphlets, various zines,
and underground comics. Blender Archtitecture was charged
with developing a flexible display system that could allow for
multiple size and type of reading material to be seen, a
simple installation by volunteers, and produced on a tight budget.
The standard 24"x48" peg-board, hung from the existing
24"x48" ceiling grid system became our base unit from which we
developed various 'reading rooms' within the gallery.
