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.

2014, hypnopompic artifact

Hypnopompic Artifact, 2014, Thomas the Train Engine bed sheet, 11 x 11 x 5 inches

You are Supported More Than You Know, 2019, Mercury 20 Gallery, Oakland, CA

The knitted strips no longer make this Thomas the Train Engine bedsheet recognizable. Instead, the resulting fuzzy image is reminiscent of a hypnopompic state upon waking, where one is confused and doesn’t know the time of day or the place where one is located.
