devidsketchbook: NEW GROWTH | STRATUM MODEL Sculptor Kendall Buster - New Growth: Stratum Model reflects a merging of the natural and the built environment. Designed to operate at once as landscape and architecture, the schematic of stacked planes seen from a bird’s eye view toggles between topography map and building in plan.

New Growth/Stratum Model a site-specific installation by Kendall Buster (2009) was created for Suyama Space in Seattle, Washington, an alternative space for experimental sculptural projects created by curator Beth Sellers. Most people talk about three-dimensional representations of map topography. For me, those flat plastic planes, cut into rounded organic shapes, and hung one above the other in layers resemble thin lenticular clouds.
