This work responds to the large and institutional scale of the 2018 SiTE:LAB venue at 415 Franklin SE, Grand Rapids, MI. Tagliati, Davidhi and Mann combine their interests in representation and perception on our experience of place. This architectural intervention is in dialog with the physicality of the space, the visual texture and layering of time and history. This site specific installation consists of wall sized photographs, creating an immersive experience that calls attention to the current state of the space after years of sitting unused and the wall serves as a metaphoric link to the buildings future use as housing.
