For inSITE94, Mathieu Gregoire created a permanent installation for the central courtyard of the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. Entitled "Blue Granite Shift/Transición del granite azul," the piece is made of granite quarried from the hills surrounding the cultural complex. Extending 500 feet throughout the courtyard, the work moves from rough granite boulders to increasingly more cut and polished stones, finally ending with completely square granite elements. Likewise, the landscaping follows a similar evolution from native plants and trees to more formal and decorative varieties. The work suggests development in the area as having been wrought from the natural environment. --inSITE94
