Abstract

This thesis project was an exploration of narrative artwork through installation. Throughout the exhibit, I used multi-panel wall pieces, traditionally bound books, and fake walls to create an unbound book for the viewers to walk through. The pathway through the gallery provided my plotline; the works manipulated the pacing of this plot through their size and placement on the wall, with careful attention given to changing perspectives through the height of the hanging, as well as adjusting time by varying the space between the panels. Multiple print mediums were used in an effort to change the tone between pieces. This was a first attempt at installation that provided numerous ideas for changing the style of this exhibit and potentially new installations.
