Artist Statement

The Seven Series

 

The Seven Series is a visual account that re-imagines the ancient Seven Wonders in typological terms. Their re-figuration contests the historical record with radical tectonic experiments. Each one is an exercise in the materialization of an architectural program. What shapes might a Mausoleum, Temple, and Hanging Gardens take? How best to deliver on the promise—the function, performance, and image—suggested in their names?
