Post Modern at the Modern Hotel


Post Modern

Rachel Reichert
Public Art
Modern Hotel, Boise, Idaho

A loop of self-referential half-truths. Post Modern is a reference to historical architecture, in response to modernism, and inspired by what came before. These concrete props, disembodied hands, and colorful backdrops are arranged for a fleeting moment when the shutter opens and closes. Arranged as a never-ending circle and built knowing that everything which has happened before, will happen again. Pulling from popular culture and social trends, inspired by the resurgence of Postmodern aesthetics, and erected to build narratives upon other narratives.
