Exposed Structures (system mapping)

October 4, 2016

Location:  Main Street and 2nd Street, Kansas City, MO


Owner:  City of Kansas City, MO


Artist:  Stuart Keeler


Dates:  2008


Medium:  Painted steel, pavement striping and landscaping



As if a specimen of the Missouri River’s substrate is presented on the site – pinned to the ground. The triangles reference the mathematician Pythagoras with cut steel that creates a tentlike “shelter” open to the sky. The mathematics to create the GIS mapping of the river bed creates a new memory work in the form of a living trellis. Undulating curves are informed through replicated mapping folds, implied movement and sculptural cavity.
