Open Sessions 2
The Drawing Center, November 2014
After Lebbeus: A Model for Drawing was built in response to paper architect Lebbeus Woods' posthumous 2013 exhibition at the Drawing Center. My aim is to underscore Woods' exploration of ethics, human psychology, and the built form. I drew from the model as a daily performance, When visitors to the space spontaneously began drawing the model themselves, I incorporated them into the work and documented the resulting drawings. The work was recreated in 2015 at the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum in San Antonio, TX.
Getting Large Eye
Still from animated video
This animation was imbedded into the structure at various points and at different sizes. Responding to the emphasis on visuality, as well as the bodily qualities of Woods' drawings, this animation, based on what can be seen through closed eyes during meditation, explores the relationship between human physiology and spiritual 'visions'.
