Artist Carson Davis Brown creates site-specific, color-based installations that provoke the passers-by to become more aware of their environment.
Brown’s project ‘Mass‘ took him to the stores across the U.S. The artist has put colorful installations in big box stores and other “places of mass”. These temporary sculptures are made of objects otherwise not linked with each other, grouped by their tones. Made without permission, the objects stand at the intersection of street and land art. Created and photographed, the artworks are then left to be experiences by the passers-by and eventually destroyed by the location’s staff. The photographs are also printed, framed and exhibited in the stores. “Carefully photographing these sculptures of ephemera before they are eroded by store’s employees is as important as erecting them,” says Brown.
