I make parallels between cosmological models and architectural representation. Working with the materials and tools of the architect—squares, triangles, pencil, ink and Mylar--, I create hybrid drawings that expose the mental ‘slippages’ and illusions that dispel the fallacy of appearances. I use mirrors to set visual paradoxes like binocular rivalry, the goblet/face illusion, etc.
Looking at the baroque as the last ‘late’ model that dealt with change and uncertainty similar to now, I borrow devices like the picturesque folly and perspective boxes to reinterpret these tropes of representation anew. I am intrigued by the questions that today’s cosmology raises, particularly the role of the observer in quantum events. Ultimately, the work proposes a new mechanism for seeing that reveals a new perceptual experience of space.
