About Allan McCollum

In his sculptures, drawings, and photographs, Allan McCollum applies the strategies of typologies and mass production to handmade objects, creating vast installations of small-scale works. In his 2006 Shapes Project, he designed a system to produce and keep track of unique graphic emblems for every person on earth. Shapes of Maine (2005-2008), an extension of the Shapes Project, is a pictorial history of the state via its craftspeople, comprising over 2,220 unique items in four categories, including wood ornaments and copper cookie cutters.

American, b. 1944, Los Angeles, California
