Quogue, NY. Consisting of a series of “timber frame” forms that are identical except for their scale, the structure employs traditional wood joinery that incrementally diminishes the scale from one to the next in the grid. Each step down in scale corresponds to a slight turn, causing the structure to spiral inward while visually expanding out into the surrounding architecture. With clarity in the physical construction, the New York artist encourages attention to be paid to the spaces in between. Catalogue, essay by Rena Leinberger.
