The life and work spaces of Utica´s diverse population have one thing in common: the dropped ceiling tile. 




Dropped Tile
Sculpture Space and 10 Semi-Public Spaces in Utica, NY

My collapsable sculpture is made from material used on site. The cheapest accoustic tiles and Walmart- brand ziploc bags are main ingredients. 
It travelles through the many 2ft on 2ft horizontal galleries all over town and snaps in into the always same shaped grid of the dropped ceiling. Following a printed-on manual it unfolds and occupies any given space connecting ground walls and ceiling and opens up a gate to the secret unknown floor above.
