Sublimation, was a site-specific installation created at the Skybox in Philadelphia as an Independent Project for the city-wide international contemporary art event, Philagrafika 2010. Curator Eileen Tognini invited Meyer to utilize the enormous open space of the gallery to create this monumental scale floor based installation from a thousand pounds of sifted baking flour using a half-tone patterning process.

For David Meyer, creating a tangible interpretation of memories becomes the dialogue between comprehension and experience. The exploration of memory and its distortion becomes a mediated process Meyer expresses through the transformation of photographic images into sculptures, and perforated "prints". The rhythm of patterns, akin to typesetting, Braille, newspaper print, pixilated imagery-- each holding a different image for each viewer -- referencing their own memory and reality.
