Architecturally integrated Art
Default Title -
The surface of the concrete works resembles Chinese landscape painting, earth core samples, strata, dirt fields and the watery surface of the ocean. Rods, planks, slabs, panels, cylinders and other basic forms in concrete can be used as interior and exterior architectural features; in passages, in indoor and outdoor walls and as art.
A series of panels, a diptych, triptych, or a solo work; the finished forms can be embedded in a wall, as one single architectural feature or as a sequence, or could function as a partition in either commercial or residential spaces.
For an outdoor application, rods and slabs may be fence posts and fence material, and a cylinder could be a flagpole. A plank can be fabricated as a bench for residence or community, a public bench.
For about two years I have been building forms from maple plywood and pouring concrete and cement. From my experience, I’ve become wise to how the work will look when I remove the plywood forms. Even though I cannot completely control the outcome, and there is a matter of chance regarding the outcome, my experience has taught me what to expect from the material.
Creating the work while in residence at Workshop may require an exploration and collaboration with a fabricator, an engineer, an architect or designer, a cabinetmaker and wood and steel workers.
The uploaded images show how I use the concrete forms as art and in an art installation setting. I hope the images can give a sense of the scale of the work, and of orientation, horizontal and vertical.
The residency would provide me an opportunity to further explore how to use these unique works and this process in a design and architectural setting.
