• Issue 15 Foreword

    If Installation’s 15th Issue were a sitcom, it’s title would be something like “the one written in the artist’s words.”  For the first time each editorial department is written by a different contributor and thus the magazine reads with a crescendo of nuance and perspective.  Contributing Editor Daniel Rolnik visited Jen Stark’s Los Angeles studio […]

  • Issue 13 Foreword

    A production crew has set up base camp twenty feet away from our office door.  Crew members pace back and forth but they are obscured occasionally by my monitor which shields me from the office window.  I can see them, but they can’t see me.  They wear concealed earpieces like they’re part of a CIA […]

    The city of Los Angeles is 503 square miles.  The landscape is vast but when considering Los Angeles from a plan descending into LAX, the city is a giant square divided into grids.  Freeways, boulevards and avenues intersect at points and break the grid into even smaller fragments.   Los Angeles has long been a source […]
