Locust Projects is pleased to announce High\, Low and in Between\, an exhibition by Miami-based artist an d designer Emmett Moore. The site-specific installation will inaugurate the Project Room of Locust Projects’ new location on North Miami Avenue in Mia mi’s Design District. A hybrid of interior design and sculpture\, High\, Lo w and in Between represents Moore’s most deliberate blurring of the two dis ciplines to date. Operating as an all-encompassing\, immersive environment\ , the installation incorporates various design elements that work together to create a cohesive whole. Though following the logic and aesthetic tenets of interior design\, architecture\, and furniture production\, High\, Low and in Between resists functionality in favor of aesthetic experience.

\ n

Fascinated by patterns both manufactured and natural\, Moore has fabricated by hand\, a series of relief wall panels \, and sculptural-architectural adaptations using a grid-based design proce ss. Sourced from a variety of everyday patterns such as the security print found on the inside of envelopes\, laminates\, wood grain\, and the covers of composition notebooks\, the patterns in High\, Low and in Between appear recurring\, yet upon closer inspection\, do not repeat exactly. By coverin g both two and three-dimensional surfaces with such patterns\, Moore both r econtextualizes these patterns and de-centers viewers by disrupting scale a nd depth perception.


The surfaces in High\, Low and in Between draw upon the legacy of design and emphasize clev er methods to conceal fabrication and structural elements. The result is an installation in which Moore investigates reality versus illusion\, the imp ression of facades and the vulnerability of their core structures.
