Between September 2013 and January 2014, the UAM's Tumblr will be dedicated to MatterApp: Pyramidial, a collaboration between the UAM, DESN 360A, and Oliver Hess, Director Emeritus of Materials & Applications, the Los Angeles-based nonprofit, which has striven to raise the conceptual standards of public art by questioning not only what is possible in the built environment, but also who participates in its development.

 

Ai Weiwei’s installation Forever Bikes (2011) at Taipei Fine Arts Museum was one of the case studies James Tudor drew from in his research. He sees the potential in creating dialogue (political or otherwise) by using the power of multiplication. MatterApp could possibly be made up of a collection of ordinary objects that, when presented in a group of multiples, make a deeper statement.
