Ci-Lines by Aaron Asis
“Ci-Lines” is a temporary installation by Aaron Asis and is inspired by the towering St. Andrew’s Collegiate Chapel, and its proximity to UCAL. Asis will collaborate with the fifth-grade class at Penn Alexander School to create an installation consisting of a scattered series of cords in tension, geometrically tethered to the architectural details of the chapel. Asis’ work draws connections between people and space and inspires new experiential relationships with built-environs.
St. Andrew’s was modeled on Oxford’s English Gothic style and built in 1923 by the Philadelphia Divinity School in association with Penn to educate Episcopal priests. “Ci-Lines” presents an unprecedented opportunity to experience the interior of the chapel, which remains locked for most of the year.
