Copies of Stairs: New work by Margo Woloweic

Bay Area artist Margo Woloweic is working on an exciting new project that features stair-related pieces made out of sewn tissue paper. Woloweic’s “copies” of entranceways and front porches of homes are created by using Google street view to approximate the ratios of stair structures in other cities, rather than through direct on-site observation. The resulting floor sculptures are quite striking and I’m looking forward to seeing where this project leads (puns always intended). Margo is a 2013 MFA candidate at the California College of the Arts and some of her recent exhibitions include The Brodmann Areas: A New Ballet from Norte Maar at the Center For Performance Research (Brooklyn, NY) and MFA Now at Root Division (San Francisco, CA) [CL]
