Untitled (IUPUI Letters) by Two Twelve

TITLE: Untitled (IUPUI Letters)
ARTIST: Two Twelve
DATE: 2008
MATERIALS: stainless steel
TYPE: sculpture

Untitled (IUPUI Letters) consists of five 7’5” tall letters which can be apprehended singularly or together to form the acronym of the university. The letter enclosures sit perpendicular to the full cabinets, giving each letter a multidimensional appearance.

Lead designer David Gibson, an architect who specializes in public information design, imagined the sculpture as a public way-finding tool, helping visitors to locate the new Campus Center building. This installation speaks to the power of public art in place-making, rendering the Campus Center identifiable to visitors. New York design firm Two Twelve collaborated with Indianapolis-based ASI Modulex to fabricate and install the sculpture.
