My work uses a repertoire of architectural elements taken from postwar suburban America and other mass-produced housing systems abroad. I use chipboard, cardboard, cement, and other utilitarian materials and production methods to dissect this Fordist-approach to lifestyle construction and the architecturally inspired ideals that come with it. Shifts in surface quality and torqued composition create an uncanny space for these architectonic forms to inhabit, upending gravity and changing the pace of visual scanning.
