Mark Reigelman's "Manifest Destiny" is a temporary rustic cabin occupying one of the last remaining unclaimed spaces in downtown San Francisco. Positioned above and between well-established city buildings, the tiny cabin can be seen affixed to the side of the Hotel Des Arts, floating above the restaurant Le Central like an anomalous outgrowth of the contemporary streetscape.

Meet the Creator

"New York-based artist Mark Reigelman studied sculpture and industrial design at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, Ohio, and product design at Central St. Martin’s College of Art and Design in London. With careful re-examination of concept and utility, Mark's work attempts to erode the boundaries of the two disciplines by redefining the conventional meaning of objects and spaces. His practice is dedicated to questioning the expected uses and qualities of form and material and creating objects that defy the limits of art and design.

Mark has received acclaim for public art projects done in conjunction with the Cleveland Museum of Art. His 2009 "Wood Pile" was named one of the 40 top art projects in the United States by Americans for the Arts. He has worked with designers such as Dror, Ron Gilad, Isaac Mizrahi, Montana Knox and Rockwell Group. His work has been featured in The New York Times, New York magazine, Frame (Netherlands), L’uomo Vogue (Italy), Public Design (Korea) and Télé Star (France).
