process

Dear friends, what you took to be my works were only my waste matter. (artaud) leavings of becomings. this is where we put symbols of carcasses, images of who we were at a specific time, in order to become something else we do not care for products or museums. we do not care for art, […]

reworking my many colored days

The plan abandoned.

The unavoidable theoretical crisis, lurking for years as an outline, a shadow at the edge of a glance, an uneasy feeling, has finally become apparent. It is in the face of this spectre that I am abandoning the profession of architecture. While innumerous evils haunt this profession, they are not in the end what has […]
