Megan Geckler

Megan Geckler creates site-specific installations using the principles of mathematics, color theory, architecture and painting in order to transform a pristine museum space into a field of color and form. Geckler’s architectural installations are assembled from thousands of strands of flagging tape, a colorful plastic ribbon utilized by surveyors to demarcate areas on construction sites. When distanced from the construction zone and placed in a museum setting, the material comes alive in unexpected ways.

Geckler’s installation transforms the Main Gallery by offering a point of departure for the visitor to experience color in space, which is achieved by attaching the flagging tape in precise measurements to the soffit and layering the material over itself as it reaches the gallery floor. As geometric drawings in space, the forms bisect and alter our preception of the museum’s architecture and take on a kenetic quality as the viewer’s orientation around the installation changes. Geckler’s site-specific projects are strongly influenced by the philosophies of minamalism and “Light and Space” yet retain a sense of play and delight.
