The digital collage works in the series Architectural Kaleidoscope playfully reinterpret forms and shapes found in 20th century architecture. The undulating 2D images challenge viewers perception of 3D space, perspective, scale and function. In Architectural Kaleidoscope the pieces are stitched together to create a college that represents unity in common structures visible throughout the American landscape.
This project was inspired by the works of Bernd and Hilla Becher, whose indexical work on built structures examine the subtly shifting industrial landscape and by Mark Klett, whose re-photography projects consider shifts in way we view the landscape and built world.
