Urban Environment

In urban environments, there’s usually a surplus of sound — so much, in fact, that it often becomes difficult to hear anything at all. But if we become too good at filtering things, have we also damaged our capacity to listen? --Bella Bathurst, Sound Advice via She Sings to the S

Artist Mary Lum strolls around the city photographing the urban environment—buildings, railings, stairwells, and other architectural details. She then deconstructs these photos and collages them with acrylic paint, creating dynamic, unique spaces for viewers to occupy and explore. At the deCordova Biennial, Lum’s images left me feeling both exhilarated and disoriented, as though I were in a dream where the environment was familiar, yet not quite right. What is fact and what is fiction?

This series of photographs are of detailed models embracing the contrived structures and unappreciated architectural components that surround us in our over developed urban environments, that haven’t necessarily come about through design, more a lack of design.<br /><br />  The models are also intended to be displayed as free standing and wall hanging pieces, to be viewed as three dimentional objects.
