Assorted Frames
32 pine board frames in order.

The brief for this project was to build a site specific installation at the Yale School of Architecture using only 1x3 in. pine timber boards.

This piece was specifically in dialogue with the building’s iconic bush hammer concrete corduroy. The intention was to create relationships of contrast and unison through material and structure. The installation uses the simple pattern of the wall to extrapolate a series of frames that ‘bounce’ across the space, undulating in width and height. The thickness of each frame also allows the structure to slot into the corduroy, making the original wall surface integral to the expanded structure.

Once constructed, the installation remained unprotected as weather and daily life intervened. The point was then to observe the project’s changing relationship to its site as rooftop parties, building maintenance, and winter storms passed through over the five months.
