Join us on Tuesday, June 11th 7PM - 9PM for an artist talk by EXTENTS, a design collaborative that operates across scales and disciplinary silos.
EXTENTS will share some of their recent and past projects in their newest environment Lossy/Lossless, presenting how their work investigates the affects of digital tools and environments on the material world around us, bridging architecture, urbanism, media, and digital culture. The collaborative is led by McLain Clutter and Cyrus Peñarroyo, faculty at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

The event will be held at 1313 Sunset Blvd., Echo Park. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com with any accessibility questions or needs.
EXTENTS is a design collaborative that operates across scales and disciplinary silos. They are interested in architecture, urbanism, media, digital culture, and other instruments of life that can be impacted by design. The collaborative is led by McLain Clutter and Cyrus Peñarroyo, faculty at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
Lossy/Lossless casually assembles a handful of Sunset Boulevard’s past and future objects. A custom made tableau wraps the walls with markers of the boulevard’s history, as well as signifiers of its nascent development. Piles of tires from a bygone flat-fix co-mingle with newly installed bike racks; payphones abut boutique placards. Some elements appear ghostly and translucent while others are willfully pixelated – each caught in a moment of disappearance or loss. Tiers of raised floors and custom foam padding fills the storefront, ready to accommodate any activity. Hard tectonics of data tiles merge with the collage of images, projecting a future entry to the Sunset tableau.
