Shelter In place, 2020

Shelter in Place depicts a confined apartment extending indifinitely. As we move backwards, programmatically generated rooms disintegrate around us just as they are formed. Without any binding force, the simple forces created by the contact of trim, tile, drywall, and stud compound to wrench the entire structure apart. Created during the citywide lockdown, this piece extends the confines of a city apartment to its breaking point, forcing a re-examination of the structures and confines of urban life.
