An inspiring use of salvaged material in the art installation Distance Don’t Matter. Swoon and collaborators Ben Wolf, Greg Henderson, Conrad Carlson, Monica Canilao and Ryan Doyle constructed the installation of found materials, wheatpasted prints, paintings and more. The installation was featured at SPACE Gallery in Portland, ME, from mid November–December ’09. The raw materials were recycled from dumpsters, waste piles and thrift stores then transformed into a 3-dimensional world that allowed the audience a direct experience of the brilliant color, texture, symbolism, intricate pattern work, and themed imagery. Swoon’s work includes the transformation of abandoned buildings, rundown warehouses, and broken walls into new and urban landscapes. An illuminating way to revitalize and ignite life in otherwise broken spaces.
