live feed of architectural model (steel, wood, magnetic components).
Exhibited at Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LACDA)
Collaboration with Jesse Russell Brooks.
Foris, Foras, Forum explores seeing through a series of spatial documentation derived from and referencing a recent public art / urban intervention: the 'Inglewood Urbanstage: Construction as Performance'. The installation elements juxtapose documentation of the real, human-scale Urbanstage in situ with a 1’ : 3/4” scaled architectural model of the Urbanstage and the surrounding site. The remodeled site, in miniature, invites the public to explore and question public space schemes. A live feed of the interactive architectural model is broadcasted in a proportionally scaled output. Here, documentation becomes a point of tension with reality.
The Urbanstage (2015), created by Wong and documented by Brooks, consisted of an architectural sculpture, construction performance and panel series sited at the civic plaza of Inglewood City hall. The project sought to activate an expansive and massively underused municipal public space. 'Urbanstage' was continuously reconstructed to create distinct iterations of transformative architecture that were activated weekly by curated civic conversations.
