Cut Architecture Magazines, 8’ x 8’

The architectural form originates from a structured and systematic grid. The paper is torn from architecture magazines and all of the content has been removed and hand-cut. The space created is unattainable as the viewer can only access the structure from the outside, as if on the edge or exterior.

A void is constructed – architectural space made out of emptiness, out of flatness, out of nothing. Although architectural, the two-dimensional magazine material remains flat and the dream world it represents operates similarly – as a flattened, unrealized space.

Since all of the content has been removed, the viewer is confronted with a facade of blank margins and empty spaces from which the material must be (re)read, meanwhile a new value system is created as the luxurious and lusty images fall away to reveal plain, white paper. The excised pages create strange windows and viewfinders into this loosely-created and fragile space, juxtaposing what is solid and void, what is dimensional and flat.

This site-specific work must adapt, evolve, and change according to the space allotted. The work mimics the floorplan of the building it is installed in so the viewer can consider the space they are in, and how they gained access to it. In future iterations, depending on the site, this work may look very different.
