Built Image

I have been focusing on the built environment and its context with natural forms, looking at the image or façade, flatness, the unseen structures and foundations of spaces, and ambiguity and indeterminacy. Urban environments are in a constant state of erasure and rebuilding, always in transformation. Yet our perception in the now of structures reinforces their "permanence," seeing the outside image of a reality. This illusion like quality is imposed on ourselves by our own devices of fabrication, cultural desire, and image manufacture. We manufacture value of things by creating them to meet criteria we perceive as valuable.
