Square Bisected by Curve, Dan Graham, 2008

Graham is interested in establishing frameworks that mix architecture and sculpture. By mixing the two Graham challenges the viewer in a simple but also fundamental way: he wants the viewer to make use of his pavillions as pieces of 'nothingness'. They resemble architecture - they have walls and rooms and yet we end up relating to them as objects or situations. His pivotal point is that no building is neutral, but each building creates reflections and emotional associations.
