"I want to be an architect."
“In thirty years, if there is a newspaper article about you, what will it say?”
“It will say that I underachieved.”
“Underachieved? Why’s that?”
“Because I can do all the work, make the right grades, and get all the right degrees. But once I’m off on my own, I won’t be the guy pushing for new clients. I do really good work, but only when I’m working within a structure.”
“Everyone is like that. You just have to practice discipline and routine so that you can create your own structure.”
"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
"What’s the hardest part about being an architect?"
"Making the drawings."
"What’s the best part about being an architect?"
"Making places for people to live."
Color Block by Kaitlin RebescoOutdoor advertisements are so ubiquitous in New York that they have almost started to become a part of the city’s architecture. Residents of the city are so inundated with these messages that they hardly even seem to notice them anymore.In these images, blocks of color replace the billboards in order to give a different perspective of the space occupied by these ads.
Room Portraits by Menno Aden
Through challenging camera angles Menno Aden abstracts most familiar actual living environments and public interiors into flattened two-dimensional scale models. A camera that the artist installed on the ceiling of various rooms takes pictures downwards of the interiors. The resulting images lay out space in symmetrical compositions that look like assemblages stripped off any kind of objectivity. The views into private homes and secret retreats bring up associations of the ubiquitous observation camera. The notion of surveillance is systematically played out by the artist to hint at society’s voyeuristic urge that popular culture has made mainstream.
