This work utilizes repetition, seriality and scale to derive raw architectural forms that resemble the contours and forms of fences, stairs, doors, and tunnels. From an outside perspective, the hard lines and hollow shapes create effects that allow for an otherwise static object to morph and change optically. From an inside perspective, when going through the tunnel, the viewer relates their body through a scale change, which creates an initial anxiety when traversing into the small and tight middle section which is then alleviated when the end of the tunnel is reached.
By stripping away the facades and skin of architectural structures to get to the skeletal form of the essential grid structure I try to investigate the basic phenomenal experiences initiated by architectural form. What does repetition, scale shift, predetermined pathways, linearity, do to the inner body? And by inner body I am referring to the sensibilities and emotions that are intricately tied to the relationship between my body with other bodies; embodiment in relation to perception. How does the organic, fluid body relate to gridded inorganic spaces utilized to impose control?
