Dwelings #7

Textile in custom made wood

Dwellings #7 is part of a more expansive project that focuses on the fragmentation of contemporary Urban vernacular symbology and the temporal experiences in communities of people of color. The quilt imbedded within the architecture serves as a symbolic gesture. Threading the abandoned landscape into the quilt as a form of temporal inclusion. This temporal inclusion is then preserved as a photo document.
