Airport, 2006. Cast hydrostone, MDF, wood, paper, 6' x 12' x 12".
The psychological state of a society is illuminated
by the structures it creates and how those structures
are used. My sculpture employs scaleddown
and streamlined versions of existing architectural
forms re-contextualized or re-presented
so that their potential for social influence
becomes more evident. Repeated architectural
choices around the world reveal a set of universal
concerns and desires: modularity, order, efficiency,
and convenience. The sculptural objects I create
call into question the validity of adopting
these characteristics as ideals.
