Working with historians and archivists, BJ Krivanek researched California history and recent social contexts to develop an environmental art program that builds upon the urban design of the campus, siting a program of environmental elements within a metaphoric landscape. The installation is comprised of three primary groups of elements: a History Wall (an historic timeline structure inscribed with suggestive issues related to California history), Possibilities + Outcomes (layered panels inscribed with interrelated issues – possibilities and their outcomes), and Campus Foundings (lighting fixtures inscribed with the names and founding dates of the 23 campuses, which illuminate the previous elements in a metaphoric manner).
