Malleability

Making architectural drawings without being trained as an architect is fake-believing. My drawings have a basis in certain sciences such as drafting, infographics, and science illlustration, all disciplines in their own right. Yet to finish these completely, I would lose the exposure of the process of creation and editing that the drawings rely on, and also fall into the category of the aforementioned disciplines.

Keeping an underpainting or drawing can act as a skeleton, whereas the paint and the image become the skin. This works similar to the fa├žade or skin of a building and its supporting structures underneath. I have always been interested in exposing construction of objects in an attempt to underline impermanence and illusion of the visual world. Showing this skeleton in space is important to explore the possibilities and visual awareness of alternative building design approaches.
