WHAT IT IS
23 East Madison, Chicago, IL, 60602
The messy vitality of a city and “why people build things as opposed to why they say they build things” inform this work, which is constructed from wood, plaster, hardware, and industrial finishes. Making the work has involved exhausting, physical, cathartic, and untidy processes. The final installation is site specific, accessed through an ornate revolving door.
