These architectural collages are each created from cut strips from a single sheet of a Domus magazine. The layered strips become three-dimensional objects reflecting the content of the magazine: architectural plans, residential buildings and design.

I don’t like to hold onto things unless I have a use for them. As I was working on my Domus collages, an interaction at my front door left me with a Watchtower magazine. Inspired to make use of it, the magazine quickly became art material. Later on when I would see racks of the magazine at the BART station, a strong desire for the material would come over me.
