This is a Love Story

This is a Love Story confronts the ideas and structures we put into place in order to protect ourselves from uncertainty. Dreamscapes are collaged together using the everyday, often seen as banal, to evoke a philosophical reading of the ever-expanding metropolis. How we build represents what we value. Materials used and decisions made will embed themselves in the layers of the earth and the strata of human history. The focus of this work transcends prefabricated concrete slabs constructed to contain and instead examines the foundations of Being. When integrated with nature, the city’s infrastructure acts as a space for contemplation; the individual and collective journey, and the act of rebuilding.
