Project Space: Dan Tierney
I finished my graduate program seven years ago. Since then, I have lived in, or moved to, at least nine different studios, each with its own parameters and often requiring a build-out and a re-build-out. This way of thinking and moving, building and un-building, ran parallel to my “regular” studio practice. These work spaces were often extensions of my domestic space— a variety of versions of the pre and post dot-com live work building code. My domestic space was defined by where my studio space was not, and the other way around was just as true. I often find myself sitting still just moving walls, platforms and storage in my mind hoping to find something new. Something interesting. Something simple.
