Between September and December 2013, I had the pleasure of working as an assistant to artist Andrea Loefke at Smack Mellon Gallery in Brooklyn. I was responsible for creating technical solutions for the installation of Loefke's pieces, which varied widely in scale, material, weight, and function. Inspired by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and its larger environmental consequences, Loefke's pieces were arranged on a 36' x 12' ship-like wooden platform that seemed to float in the large warehouse gallery space. Much of the challenge that Loefke invited me to help solve was creating a sense of visual compatibility between the wide diversity of art work that was to be included while also devising and building supports and anchors for the heavier pieces that would be invisible to the viewer, appearing to seamlessly "grow out" of the platform.
