American ceramics artist Nathan Craven is known to create walls and floors using odd-shaped ceramic bricks. His latest large-scale interactive installation Construct, is consisted of 14,000 individual ceramic pieces that were shown once before at the Denver Art Museum but reconfigured for the new space at Boise State University.
Craven aims to draw attention to unnoticed architectural elements as well as to the spaces in which we dwell. “Walls and floors, they pretty much dictate where we move and how we move through architecture, but they pretty much go unnoticed … so I thought, why not just actually make the wall the work instead of making the wall and hanging something on it?”
Construct is on view until Friday Oct. 26, 2012. Visitors are invited to walk on the ceramic carpet, but high heels are discouraged.
