Roush’s oblique series of discrete installations made reference to the interior and exterior structural realities of the Frank Gehry-designed museum. Building on the viewer’s associations with interlinking and referential objects, and dealing with contrasting forms of transparency and light, Roush created an ineffable sense of magnitude and volume, allowing viewers to feel the ephemeral as a material presence.
