Tiffany Lin, Associate Professor of Architecture at Tulane, will have her work on exhibit at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, running Feb. 4-28, 2019. The exhibit, Datum Drawing explores the use of datum in drawing as an architectural or spatial point of reference.
"I am thrilled to be a part of an exhibition that showcases speculative drawing and painting as integral to the architectural design process," Lin said.
A datum line is a line to which dimensions are referred on engineering drawings, and from which measurements are calculated. The term datum refers to a piece of information or a fixed point of scale that serves as a reference in defining geometry of a composition and in measuring aspects of that geometry to assess its relations to another value in space.
The exhibit features two architects and two artists that employ the use of datum lines in their work. Along with Lin's architectural art, the exhibit will also include Aaron Collier, Assistant Professor of Art at Tulane University; Perry Kulper, Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan; and Derek Lerner, an artist based in New York City.
"It is an honor to be in a group show with Perry Kulper as we often reference his work in core studio teaching and I look forward to meeting him," Lin said.
