The Brown/RISD dual degree exhibit, called 2 x 4 (as in the lumber you buy at Home Depot) was unveiled on January 28 at the Granoff Center. Running through February 12, this year’s exhibition focused “on themes of multiplicity, calculation, and construction and was “inspired by what is elementary, use of materials, process work, manmade versus natural, and collaboration.”
The main exhibition space had more than a few nods to the 2 x 4 theme, with a Bob the Builder themed photo booth, a huge wooden cube built in the center of the room, and small art installation featuring, you guessed it: 2 x 4’s.
Small tables supplied with index cards and markers offered visitors a chance to participate. Little cards prompted us: draw wood, draw the person next to you, draw your transportation to the wood, draw a compliment. Once finished with your masterpiece, you could hang them up in the cube.
