Object Int’l —
  1. Architecture is a perfect metaphor, an allegory in volume. When placed its sculptural limits beget a kind of artistic proposition — and when considered with reduced anthropomorphism and ungeologically — produce a ready-made analog to the causation and bounds of our attempts at the understanding of all things.


2. Illusion Relief

Illusion Relief. An 8x4’ model. 

WP / 2017
From Illusion Relief

            By using media to displace material, Illusion Relief is adapted from a transformation of legibility. When opening a glass door; we see the landscape of the city reverberating in front of us. This enhances the invisible occurrences of a moment moving through a threshold.
            The main focus is to analyze the intersections based on these collisions of image, landscape, and transparency through image, animation, to model.  A hologram serves as a means of projection to augment the experience by animation. Shadow is used as a technique the process by which the walls cross, fold, and collide - unfold a duly abstract space.
