Master of the Edifice
Masters of the Edifice is a photographic project that displays in light and sound the city of Baltimore thru large photographic reproductions in lightboxes of some of the many painted murals around the City. The photos will recontextualize the murals with their new Inner Harbor surroundings, but remind us of their origins by being framed within black iron piping. There will be two rows of frames approximately 60 to 80 feet long. The visitor will be able to wander down the recreated Baltimore “alley” and view the murals in a context similar to their installation around Baltimore’s neighborhoods. Similarly, speakers will play audio of organic ambient sound recorded throughout the city of Baltimore, conceptually adding further context to the images.
