Installation

A/D/O

Currently on view under the A/D/O Periscope skylight in the atrium, Granger’s latest installation, “Tetromino,” presents banks of color block intensity. From various perspectives the heights and interactions of the blocks produce shifting effects that alter the experience. “I often like for each project – whether it’s an installation or a painting – to transcend into the next,” he says. “With this specific project, there were the challenges of how viewers interact with it. How light – natural or artificial – interacts with it, and the architecture of the space will ultimately inform the tertiary design.”

Granger draws inspiration from artists like Sol LeWitt and Bernard Friz, and certain elements of his work recall the permutations of Tauba Auerbach. His materials vary widely: from crayon, paper, yarn, paint, wood and metal – and their arrangement often involves recombinative forms: Granger mentions Rubik’s cube, and tile mosaics. “I like to create awkwardly beautiful fantasy worlds,” he continues. “I am challenging the idea of what it means for our immaterial lives as they’re played out in this timeless, spaceless digital dataplasm. Technology has made our lives feel so precise and exact. Our physical lives rarely are.”
