Outside the Inner Kingdom

Original Medium: Ceramic Assemblage

Location: 15th and I in Sacramento

The utility box is in front of Super Pan & E Tea which serves food from Thailand, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. I wanted to design an image that complemented the fusion spirit of the restaurant. A few years ago, I traveled to Thailand and this provided me with the fodder to build a freestanding 8’ tall ceramic sculpture based on my memories and experiences there, titled Inner Kingdom. Similar to a cabinet of curiosities, the sculpture is embedded with wonderful objects just waiting to be discovered by the viewer. Although the design of the utility box wrap uses images of the ceramic sculpture in a flattened format, there is one panel with the entire sculpture while the others are composites of details recontextualized for maximum visual stimulation.
