Cut, Collaged, and Photocopied Architecture Magazines, 24'“ x 24”

This collage series presents an insider or interior view of dissected architecture magazines. The viewer must navigate through a defamiliarized room – a domestic interior acting as a microcosm for navigating space in society.

Cut, Collaged, and Photocopied Architecture Magazines, 24'“ x 24”
