Susan Campbell awarded at the Nth Degree exhibition in St. Charles Missouri

Graphic Design Sessional Instructor Susan Campbell has been awarded the Going Solo Juror's Choice Award for her sculpture installation called "Zoned Out" at the Nth Degree, a juried exhibition of works that uses numbers or mathematics, currently taking place at the Foundry Art Centre in St. Charles, Missouri. Two of her works are included in this exhibition. 

About the project:

"Zoned Out is a sculptural installation comprising of a large clearance zone, flanked by clusters of smaller zones, which converge and unfold on top of one another, competing and jostling for monopoly of a finite space. The homogeneity of the forms stems from a branch of urban semiotics associated with urban planning. The actual forms themselves are mapped and modelled from clearance zones found in public and private parking lots located in Oshawa’s central core.

The title Zoned Out refers to the use of urban planning tools and the potential exclusionary impact of zoning ordinances to segregate certain demographics while marginalizing or displacing others.

With this in mind, the installation amounts to a mapping of socially contentious zones, while attempting to document and interpret patterns of urbanization, pedestrian safety, and rezoning strategies."
