The Infinite Reduced to 2968

For their Coup d'Espace project, Meagan Mueller and Christine Varela dramatically transformed the WPA office space with a canopy installation of string and push pins. 

Created with simple materials, the installation was inspired by the organic geometry found in nature and aimed to simulate the experience of being under a canopy of trees.


Coup d’Espace is WPA’s member-generated programming series. By inviting member artists and curators to plan installations, exhibitions, and events in its office project space, WPA provides a venue for unusual collaborations, exploration of new concepts, and the production of new and experimental work. Coup d’Espace allows artists and curators to utilize the WPA office as a laboratory or workshop space, to introduce new and in-process projects and present challenging ideas.
