In the development of a site-specific public art program for a new building on the ASU campus, Krivanek+Breaux considered the social dynamics of a multi-use classroom building within the campus and its relationship to the outside community.
In the shadow of Brach's, twenty-eight massive wooden posts stand in an orderly rectangular configuration. Painted creosote black, the east and west faces of the posts are inscribed with the job titles of members of the Austin community. The north and south sides are inscribed with descriptive words these workers use to explain their job experience. The north contains negative descriptions and the south contains positive words. The skeletal configuration of the blackened posts mirrors the massive, unoccupied Brach's factory structure across the street.
