The guide is a visual record of the installation of an environmental sculpture in the Wright State University Art Gallery. Room for Wright State was designed and built specifically for the Art Gallery by Stephen Antonakos. This document is meant to lend permanence to a temporary exhibition and to allow the reader to participate in the experience of the project from inception through completion. As an aid to the reader, the interior dimensions of the truncated cube that houses the neon (viewed from the upper gallery level) are 18' 6-5/8" x 20' 1-5/8" x 13' 6" high (565 x 610.5 x 410 cm). The dimensions of the exterior walls (lower gallery level) are 29' 7" x 25' 9-1/4" x 11' 10-3/4" high (900 x 780.5 x 379 cm). The medium is wood, plasterboard, and clear (red) neon.
