401 Harrison Street
The first art museum designed by I.M. Pei was built in 1968. It sits like a sculpture on a pedestal of parking lots in downtown Syracuse. Brummund created a video installation for the facade based on photographs of this museum and a similar museum designed by the same architect. The second museum is located in city an hour or two away. Both museums are in the region that is surveyed by the exhibition for which this project was commissioned. The dialogue between the two buildings is a layer in understanding this place and the mark of modern architecture in our communities. The plaza is lit up by the subtle and contemplative effects of concrete being projected onto concrete.
