The Los Angeles design collaborative, SPORTS, has sent us their most recent project, a gallery installation in Hollywood, California. A description of the project and additional images are after the break.

Stay Down Champion, Stay Down is a commissioned temporary installation for the Woodbury University Hollywood (WUHO) gallery, located along the busy and iconic Hollywood Blvd Walk of Fame.

Considering this location and context, the installation focuses on the presence and activity of the ground plane. Comprised of a system of terracotta tiles, the floor of the gallery breaks away from the planar to compose a flowing and colorful interior landscape that guests can navigate through on foot. The bulging areas of this landscape are created by gradually elevating the handmade tiles on transparent acrylic supports. Heightened by vibrantly colorful lighting, the contrast of the analog tiles and digital surface creates a compelling visual and spatial experience that rivals the lure of the historic sidewalk beyond the gallery.
