molly hunker and greg corso of los angeles-based studio sports have completed ‘stay down champion, stay down’, their most recent installation for the woodbury university hollywood gallery.

considering its context and location along the busy and iconic hollywood boulevard walk of fame, the temporary installation focuses on the ubiquity and surface activity of the ground plane.

consisting of a series of  terracotta tiles, the floor of the gallery breaks away from its traditional flat plane to create a colorful and undulating landscape that guests can maneuver through on foot.

the protruding areas of this landscape are composed of a series of handmade tiles that sit atop a grid of gradually elevating transparent acrylic supports. vibrant and colorful lighting contrasts the digital-like surface, creating a compelling visual and spatial experience that rivals the lure of the infamous sidewalk beyond the gallery.
