Systems Inside Out

Spring 2012
Roxanne Yamins, BFA December '11 candidate in the Department of Art, and 2010 Cornell University Undergraduate Artist Award winner, will present an installation that discloses systems that are typically unseen or unknown. For this piece, Yamins will replicate in exact detail, select housing units within the Ithaca Public Works systems of water and electricity. The interior panels and mechanisms inside an electrical box or water supply unit, will be fabricated from blue foam core and adhered to the outside of the housing units. Adjacent to the pieces will be links to websites that will provide real time display of where the power lines go and the volume or capacity at which they are functioning.
