Susan Meyer employs the techniques of map-making and
modeling to create Modernist-inspired structures that explore the existing tensions between the communal and individual.
The glistening vibrant sculptures assume a singular landscape… creating an alternative, insular world. Drawing
on a variety of philosophical views on notions of communal living ranging from those of Walter Gropius and the Bauhaus artists
to Buckminster Fuller to the inhabitants of Colorado's commune, Drop City, Meyer juxtaposes the idealism expressed through
geometric form with the stark reality of human behavior. Indeed, her miniscule inhabitants reflect a range of attitudes
and emotions that appear at odds with the utopic idealism long associated with Modernist endeavors.
