Outside In is comprised of seven pieces of work that vary in scale, materials and methods constructed. The work focuses on themes of the built environment, specifically on process, aesthetics, materiality and the organizational language of architecture. Similarly, each piece displays a variety of complex layering that can be realized through the act of and investigation with the object. For this project I adopted a process of altering reclaimed forms and materials in order to create a reconstructed artifact. By reconstituting various found forms and reorganizing their structure I created another layer for which an alternative discourse can occur. In conjunction to altering familiar forms I have also incorporated common building materials associated with the construction industry and applied them to the assemblage of objects. By utilizing the language of furniture and applying non-traditional materials associated with furniture, I am shifting the context back and forth between said environments. It is my hope that the viewer is encouraged to draw new associations to the furniture object by the visual signs and information provided. The objects in this exhibition were realized through a process of experimentation, deconstruction/reconstruction practices, and traditional furniture techniques. Materials for this project include drywall, architectural elements, cast-off hardwoods, paint, packing foam, closet doors, and glass. Outside In was on display in the University Gallery at San Diego State University from April 27- May 3, 2013. Images of this thesis project are on file at the School of Art, Design, and Art History at San Diego State University.
