Turning the drawings into volumetric explorations. Finding depth in the presence of drawing; can a drawing have depth?, Can it have volume? Tools that we usually rely on to give sanity to an otherwise incoherent set of graphics Volume, Shadow, Ground, and Perspective again are all at play. Shadow is finally just as powerful questions its own existence, where does it end, or begin?
Shadows continue through mass, or have mass themselves. A single line can either create depth, deceive it, or eliminate it.
Using the tools that are inherent in the axon, such as volume, shadow, contrast and exposure are still in use yet the viewer is not placed any closer to an answer solely using those. Here, the only tool that will reveal is the viewer, not the author.
The only limit we face is that of our minds, the ability to walk the thin line between our rational tendencies and our unconscious urges.
Architecture is a medium, not a goal. Each curve, extension and hallway is a result of these two halves colliding, allowing for a momentary glimpse into the overlap.
We need to give our minds the space to grow, to be itself, to exercise our diversity. We need to give it space so that it may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, failure, chance and impossibilities as tangents for exploration. In the path of thought, we are the hindrance, not the idea. Ideas are pure. Yanked into existence the moment we think it. There is no impossibility, only avenues not yet explored.
We must not create as we see, but as we imagine. If we learn to remove our hindrance, and see, refocus and understand what the work says, we may find it has its own voice, its own desires and its own urge to become more.
