In 1994 Austrian artists Wolfgang and Brigitte Podgorschek, a.k.a. PRINZGAU/podgorschek were artists-in-residence at UMAS's studio. Their context-specific approach to art making and their intertextual use of film, architecture, sculpture and installation were reflected in the work they produced during their residency. They created a series of new works on paper, a video, and an installation in which they applied their particular brand of architecture to UMAS's unique building, a huge, concrete industrial edifice. They envisaged a Dyadic Pier jutting out from the building at two points to connect with the Saugeen River flowing behind it.The site specifity, cultural commentary and architectural folly common to their model-based projects were created in a life-size version.
