Organograms, 2006 - 2009 (last edited: 2022)

About this exposition

The Organograms were proto-versions of Diagrammatic Instruments. Conventionally, organograms depict organizational hierarchies. The images of arts organizations I created and for which I appropriated the name, Organogram, were based on stories the people working in the organizations and sometimes also their clients and stakeholders told me, about enacting their roles. All those part of such conversations were also the primary audience for the resulting, diagrammatic image, having participated in a reflexive assessment of their work environment. Several of the organograms were associated with additional activities, leading into their creation (for example a design contest), or associated with their presentation in exhibitions (for example musical presentations, talks, or interactive objects, such as wearable buttons). Such events were clues to the secondary, museum or gallery audiences that they were encountering a poetic scenario, rather than a map.
