Shannon Wright

Shannon Wright was in the DeYoung Open, and is slowly building the installation version of the piece.

Shannon Wright made this digital drawing, "Salon Après Tetris (5 Seconds of Fame)" specifically in response to the deYoung Open call for entries. She built the scene (minus the figure) in Rhinoceros and painstakingly redrew all the parts and the person in Adobe Illustrator. The piece is a vector drawing of an installation piece that she has been building on her sabbatical in addition to another project. The installation was accepted into Untitled Miami Beach but she had to change the plan because it's going to take a while to build all 25 tetris frames. She worked on numerous other projects on my sabbatical also.
