Wade Kramm

Wade Kramm’s Wall Fragments jolt perception and manipulate space by strategically placing mirror-like portals on walls, floors, and corners of the gallery. These perceived architectural realities made from building materials (such as drywall, molding, floorboards, and doors) expand our perceptual awareness while also making us cognizant of the perceptual process we use when we construct the world by looking at it.
