In 2019, IBM set out to redesign their Global Solutions Center. in Coppell, Texas. But instead of the traditional interior designer approach, IBM wanted something culturally unique that could bridge the workplace and to create a unique sense of inclusivity. The answer was to redesign the center using local talent. Artist Uprising, a Dallas based agency, was tasked with the mission to curate eight artists in the Dallas Ft. Worth that could bridge the workplace using culture and art.
Cardboard Spaceship was contracted to document the entire process. Starting in July 2020 and ending in September 2021, we documented the entire creative process of each artist. What started out as simple concepts ended in wonderful masterpieces. We worked with IBM, Artist Uprising and each artist to capture the journey of each artist’s creative approach.
