Domain is a site specific installation composed of cast and constructed elements. Domain explores the delicate space that exists between subjective experience and the concrete world. Abstracted forms engage with the architecture, questioning what we perceive and from what vantage point we perceive it.

Domain seeks to investigate the ambiguity of our surroundings. A wall has two sides, but also an inside, a top and a bottom. Beyond this physical variety lies the open-ended multiplicity of one’s perception of a space. Our experiences are mediated by our cultural and personal histories. When we perceive a wall it is constructed out of every past experience that has led up to this encounter.

There is a space between me and the world and there is a space between me and you. Domain is an exploration into this space.
