M. Northridge: MISSISSIPPI (2009) drywall/paint

The full length of the Mississippi River routed into sheetrock (variable to the height of the wall)

In his installation Mississippi, Northridge isolates the jagged line of America’s longest river and redraws it in its entirety on the gallery wall. Closer study reveals that the innocuous contour, which initially appears like an incidental crack in the wall, is in fact a carefully routed groove, painted and finished in its original cartographic position.

      Thank you! I must admit that I’m not quite in your league when it comes to originality in blogging, but I’m working on it!
      All the best for 2012!

    I love that, and his other work on display at his web site. Original and austere.

      I find him very interesting too. I would love to have a closer look at and to know more about his ongoing “The world we live in” http://www.matthewnorthridge.com/work/gallery/795 – it touches upon questions I try to study in my own project; HOME.
