A colorful stool made from a single pine board. Utilitarian, lightweight and stackable. The stool is unpainted on surfaces where the body comes into contact, and the interior is tinted with a bio-based milk paint.
Exhibition design, fabrication and gallery discussion of original work at Shed Space, Brooklyn.
What is the importance of the connection between architecture and its uninterested surroundings? This exhibition documents the outside of architecture and opens a conversation on the role this territory has in the formation of space.

Two spaces are made in the wilderness. One is a grove of trees, existing, that has been painted white. The other is a small weather tight box with one small eye that looks directly at the grove of trees. Through the eye, daylight projects an inverted image of the landscape across the walls and ceiling: a camera obscura. This box, too, has been painted white. The outdoor space is used for immersion in the wilderness. The indoor space is used for protection from it. Both spaces heighten the resident’s perception through abstraction and stare on toward the other, perpetually and perhaps indifferently.
