Renée Green: Code: Survey
24 Quincy St.
Thu., Sep. 14, 2017, 12 – 6 p.m.
Renée Green’s ongoing residency, Pacing, continues in CRC/bookshop with an installation of Code: Survey (2006); in this version, the focus is on the online dimension of Green’s public art commission for the California Department of Transportation. Code: Survey was developed for the Morphosis-designed Caltrans District VII Headquarters in downtown Los Angeles as an architectural and digital installation. Whereas the building houses a grid of 168 glass panels of images related to transportation, each panel engraved with an alphanumeric code, the website is its searchable counterpart of photographs, codes and an index of keywords. Images, texts, film footage and audio from interviews with Caltrans employees as well as native Californians intermingle in Green’s website as a dynamic archive that undermines and complicates our expectation of searching any form of place.
