In November 2014, my friend Lukas Winklerprins (mathematician, designer, lego-enthusiast) discovered a pair of keys on his driveway that unlocked an empty apartment next door. He reached out to me, and our friends Polina GodzJordan Beard, and Nathan Zack, and we threw a one-night, pop-up, 12-artist show.

Polina Godz and I were tasked with creating the visual identity for the show—an interesting task, considering the exhibit was about temporarily, secrecy and the invisible. Polina created the visual identity, which emphasized ideas of dimensionality and empitness. We chose to print our materials with a pen plotter, rigged with a pencil, and provided non-space branded erasers to the participants. The pencil plotter was also installed in the show as a live poster printer. We provided non-space blank key rings as a takeaway.

Thanks to artists and participants Alice Taranto, Savannah Berkley, Danny Sobor, Lukas Eigler-Harding, Rachel Haberstroh, Zack Korol-Gold, Yeon Hak Ryoo, Julie Mennone, Nic Schulman, Wes Sanders, Steven Dowd, Milan Koerner-Safrata, and to my fellow team members for working quickly, acting well under pressure, and staying up all night. Additional kudos to The College Hill Independent for the appropriately vague press.
