Produced in cooperation with Kent State University's Special Collections section, this exhibition documents, for the first time and in full detail, the creation of one of KSU's more popular art spaces. With 16 photographs by the author and text taken from an interview with plaza creator Brinsley Tyrrell, this exhibit serves as a definitive chronicle of a distinctive and historical work of art.
On a college campus filled with abstract, esoteric public sculptures that scream for the viewer to interpret their meaning, the Brain Plaza creates a uniquely honest and simplistic voice that most artists are afraid to use. I wanted my documentation to be just as honest, which is why I chose black & white for my aesthetic. There's a blunt truth in black & white, and I felt that the high contrast of my monochrome images would discover every hidden detail of the Brain's concrete forms. Some works of art try to deceive and others try to confuse, but as I hope I've shown with Brinsley Tyrrell's Behind the Brain Plaza, sometimes symmetry and virtue can be the most rewarding.
