Paper Architecture


Paper Architecture, 2002

Created with the New York Times, and other print media from countries such as Japan and Holland, these new sculptures reconfigure the daily information stream into micro-architectures. Constructed with trestle girders similar to those found in large civic infrastructure, scaffolding reminiscent of unfinished building projects, and translucent facades in which the print of both sides of the paper is conjoined to create visual cacaphony, these sculptures play with our notion of the authority of information. Seemingly sturdy, yet transparent and weighing no more than a few ounces, these sculptures affirm the ephemerality of the information that surrounds us, and quietly question the sources of power which inform and shape that information.
