Project Description

The confluence of the tradition and the modern, are the ethos and the architecture philosophy I learned from the tutors that guided me through countless desk crits. To be in the moment, for both visual diaries and artifact…I believe, is to adapt, to work with what I have. It is an interaction of motion and stillness in order to create through uncertainty and contingency. The artifact created is a culmination of found objects, uncertainty, and contingency. It is a product of receptivity from discussions and lectures turned into a snapshot of living and existing in the pandemic.
