Sense of Place
2017 | Los Angeles Nomadic Division | Los Angeles, US
Sense of Place by Jose Dávila is a multi-site, large-scale, public sculpture exhibition migrating through and integrating into the diverse urban landscape of Los Angeles to draw a kind of portrait of the city’s many experiences, geographies and histories. Sense of Place consists of a 8 foot square cube sculpture comprised of 40 individual concrete conjunctional forms. Initially installed in West Hollywood Park, over the course of nine months the sculpture will slowly disassemble 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 lo- cation. In this sense the pieces become a social platform promoting interaction with the public, who will ultimately decide on the function of the artwork.
