A wall is the place where the human body entwines with its habitat. It is the arena where sensuality and rationalism coexists. These series of site-related installations examine the relationship between the body and one's immediate surroundings. By manipulating the surface of the walls, I am transforming the architectural space into a locus for exploration. The fleshy quality they acquire as a result of this interaction reinforces the contrast between the transience of the body and the endurance of architecture. The subtle alterations in the nature of these architectural settings provoke and challenge our perceptual possibilities. I believe desire gets in the way of our perception.
