2017

Stencils that I have designed and laser cut in order to provide myself with architectural drafting tools. The shapes represent the simplified floor plans of all the kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms within the residences that I have inhabited throughout my life. Each stencil contains a custom measurement system (from 0 - 3in.) that is based on the dimensions of the shapes.

A dissection of leftover scraps of paper (hundreds of remnants from the creation of paper boxes) that have been categorized and organized by shape and size into 18 groups, Groups A - R. The contour of these paper scraps were turned into screenprint stencils (red) with graphite drawings depicting potential structural components within each shape.

Dimensions of flattened paper boxes that have been drawn, scanned, and printed digitally. Once that image was created, I responded to the measurements and shapes that were created once the box plans were combined to create one large shape, similar to an architectural floor plan. Those responses were based on box measurements as well as 90 and 45 degree angles and were turned into screen printed layers.

A suite of drawings based on the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living room from my graduate school apartment. The shapes depict a three-dimensional representation of the negative space created by the arrangement of furniture and appliances in each room. Treating the arrangement of material possessions as more defining of inhabited space rather than the architecture.
