Focus Group
Installation by Houston

Focus Group is a selection of sculptures, photographs and video from a 
series called Market Penetration, begun in 2003. The work is produced by 
"Houston" a logo, a brand, a group or an individual. The work has the 
look and feel of consumer-grade mass-production, and along with the logo 
on each piece, suggests "product." Like a product line, the pieces share 
a color palette, materials and textures. They act as props arranged to 
create a narrative, a psychological space, a sense of a ritualistic 
moments caught in stasis. The elements diagram the American Spirit, 
through the form of 'product' and branded experience.

Waiting Room
Installation by Scott Wayne

Waiting Room is composed of 39 axes lodged into the ceiling. The space 
below will remain open, taunting a viewer to experience 39 axes hovering 
12 feet above. The axes will be installed into a 12ft x 12ft section of 
the ceiling.
