We love the experience of getting to know a space from the inside out. Our process is conceptual, exploratory, and driven by curiosity. To establish a holistic vision for a space, we seek to understand its geographic context, history, and physical attributes. With this information, we create a visual narrative to harmonize with an environment and the people who frequent it. We believe in an open dialogue with our clients and the audience the art is for—after all they know the space best. This kind of collaboration is instrumental to the success of a piece.
Thoughtful site-specific artwork invites a meaningful connection between people and place, and optimistically shapes the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
For over 30 years, this elevated stretch of Interstate-5 has served as the shelter for California’s largest farmers market. Our vision was to transform this anonymous concrete overpass with artwork that reflects the vibrancy and life that fills the space every Sunday morning. After input from the famers market founder and surrounding neighborhood associations, we created keywords to direct our design process: seasonal, alive, community, and cyclical.
Bright Underbelly transforms 70,000 square feet of concrete into painted blue sky and abstract branches and leaves of sycamore trees that once grew on the site. There are four areas of the design, each representing a season. The mural transitions from the lush leaves of summer to the barren branches of winter. Between the branches you’ll discover local wildlife depicted. Encompassing the entire piece is the shimmering lunar cycle for one year.
