Salt Lake City, UT
Shrinking Room is a monumental, wood sculpture that merges architectural form with text to address issues of wealth inequality. This sculpture originated from Manley’s interest in developing a project related to the acute angles forming the architecture of the UMOCA building, specifically the corner of his (A-I-R) studio space.
The sculpture incorporates 25 quotes by activists, philosophers, artists and writers spanning various points in history to present day, all of which assert opposition to greed, class inequality and oligarchical societies.
