Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art: Architure + Art

Dan Mihalyo and Annie Han form the Seattle-based practice Lead Pencil Studio.

Lead Pencil Studio makes work that fits between the worlds of art and architecture. The piece Maryhill Double, sited along Oregon's Columbia River Gorge, is constructed from scaffolding and debris netting. It mirrors a 18,000-square-foot museum located across the river.

Made from salvaged building debris and paper, After (Billboard) makes commentary on the empty content of condominium advertising.

For the piece Retail/ Commercial, Han and Mihalyo used the remains of retail display to create a sculpture in a defunct Seattle retail space.

Shown at the Wright Space in Seattle, Accumulation is a musing on the passing of time. The architect-artists used paint slowly dripping from the ceiling to visualize temporality.

At the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Lead Pencil Studio installed a full-scale exact reproduction of a one-bedroom apartment room. All personal belongings were painted a dull gray.
