SENSE OF PLACE
LIMITED EDITION 200
Sense of Place was derived from Davila’s "Joint Effort" sculpture series which expands the concepts of balance
and equilibrium using basic construction materials such as concrete blocks and stones.
In continuation of this exploration, Sense of Place consists of a seven-foot nine-inch square cube sculpture comprised of 40 unique concrete conjunctional forms. Initially installed in West Hollywood Park, over the course of nine months the sculpture slowly disassembles its various pieces, migrating to far reaching locales of the city such as landmarks, significant architectural sites, community hubs, shopping malls, bus stops, etc., taking on different functional forms at each location. In this sense the pieces become a social platform promoting interaction with the public, who will ultimately decide on the final function of the artwork.
The publication has a beautiful surface feel and is signed and numbered on book and slipcase.
