About This Piece

“14th Street Overlay” is a civic artwork occupying 12 blocks of 14th street between Market Street and Colfax Avenue in Downtown Denver.

The piece consists of 23 individual cast metal sculptures, optical components, mounting foundations and QR tag signage. Each piece has been specifically designed to align with its selected site.

Each casting was based on a historically significant optical device and cast in aluminum or bronze. The castings consist of a smartphone, a motion picture camera, a spyglass, a twin lens reflex camera, a coin-operated telescope, an instant camera and a television set.

The optical content featured in each piece was derived from manipulated historic photographs or commissioned illustrations.

Along with the physical presence of the pieces, viewers can visit 14thSt.org to find information about each site and its relevant story. Each element also includes a stainless steel QR code tag.

As a whole, “14th Street Overlay” was designed to act as a sort of treasure hunt for pedestrians along the street.
