transient architectures

The series Transient Architectures for New Tomorrows is a developing body of work which plays with the viewer's perception of the photograph, interrupting the so-called "truth value" (representation indexicality) through the inclusion of exposed and often disruptive structural forms. The series was originally inspired by both theatrical staging and research into the early foundations of the development of Cubism. Increasingly, Transient Architectures also takes as its subject the built environment and societal perceptions of nature.
