Profile Type: artist
Krivanek+Breaux/ Art+Design’s collaborative approach begins with communities and stakeholders--to collect the underlying cultural histories, contexts, and dynamics related to a site. They build upon this to guide the development of the public artwork--relating its concepts, forms, and content to the metaphoric potential of the site. They produce inscribed buildings, spaces, and infrastructures that broadcast community experiences, histories, or narratives, inward to and outward from the immediate community to the city beyond. These public artworks--metaphoric forms surfaced with icons, symbols and inscriptions--interface with natural and built environments, integrating the language of architecture with the lost languages and histories of urban communities.
