RYAN SIMMONS / In Conjunction

2019

Drawing on the rich heritage of the historic Relief Society Granary building both as a structure and as a place of communal gathering, In Conjunction uses elements of the structure as a medium to explore what it means to exist within a community, as well as the impact one can have upon their community. In Conjunction features a compilation of stop motion animation works created by individuals throughout the community using oolite sand, which is then and formatted by the artist to be projected onto the exterior of the Granary Arts building.
