Inner Worlds: The Politics of Affect

Project Description

Yale University’s institutional power and authority are conveyed on Chapel Street as one has already entered the quasi-campus. Louis Khan and his Yale Center for British Art stand opposed, formally, linguistically and materially to the Yale Art Gallery designed in part by H.I. Feldman. As a pair, they sit heavily, weighing on the passerby. By saturating every single atom with light using the banality of hang lights, this project assumes the role of arbitrator, both dissolving the power of the Institution, and reboots the pedestrian out of a mostly pedestrian experience.
