Oakland Squared is a large-scale collage installation done by the collaborative arts group 5 Ton Crane. Six images of Oakland were selected, scaled up and fragmented into a grid. Members of 5TC chose individual squares from the images to reproduce using any methods and materials of their choice.
The individual squares were then re-assembled to create six multi-media, topographical, collage representations of the original images.
I worked on several squares for image # 3 – a market in Chinatown.
The installation will be in the window gallery of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art until summer 2013.
