More About Kristen Wentrcek and Andrew Zebulon

INTERMEDIATE STATES is an immersive, site-specific installation of fiberglass, light, sound, and space. Constructed entirely within Wentrcek and Zebulon’s studio from hand-laid fiberglass panels, visits to the installation are restricted to small groups of 8 people. Fully immersed in a glowing, seamless, sulfur-hued cavity, each visitor is provided with a seat that has been wrapped in a resin-impregnated medical cast tape.

INTERMEDIATE STATES II, shown at COLLECTIVE DESIGN 2018, is an immersive, site-specific installation of light, material, and scale. The installation is primarily constructed from an amber-hued fiberglass paneling, made by hand specifically in this opacity and color. At the center of the installation is a sculptural work that has been wrapped in resin-impregnated medical cast tape.
