On the Tarmac

To most people, tarmac markings are hieroglyphics writ large: an obscure language that greets us as we glide down toward the earth. It is a code both intimately familiar and radically alien.

On the Tarmac reconceives this code. Designer Dennis Pieprz Assoc. AIA, who spends countless hours taxiing to distant terminals as part of his work, documented his travels, armed with boundless curiosity and an iPhone. As if collecting postcards along his journey, Pieprz framed images not to convey instructions but to capture vivid patterns and surprising juxtapositions, rigorous geometry and playful shadows. By freeing the tarmac from utility, Pieprz’s photos allow new meanings to emerge, exploring poetry of line work and the ballet of human activity. This collection is about slowing pace and paying attention, but most important about seeking sublime moments in the everyday.

The exhibition, presented by BSA Space in partnership with Sasaki Associates, features more than 250 images from Pieprz’s archive. In addition, interpretive information and supergraphics invite viewers to decode and recode meanings as they learn about the language of the tarmac and follow Pieprz on a whirlwind journey.

Don't miss the opening reception on November 10 at 6:00 pm. This special event is the first opportunity to explore the exhibition while enjoying complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres. RSVP here.
