Museum hosted this exhibition titled Honorable Ordinaries where this site-responsive piece was
installed from May 19–August 14, 2016. The piece, with/without, was comprised of rows of chevrons
applied by hand in a pattern that covered a long expanse of the street-level windows. The viewer’s
range of vision was influenced or obstructed by the pervasive shapes, allowing the choice to either
look at them, or through them. This duality is also present in the symbolism of the chevron. The
chevron is an angled shape that references the roof of a house, and historically served as an
honorable ordinary that symbolizes protection.
