Folded Image

Visual studies project at The Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), instructor Andrew Zago, 2014

with Helena Yun and Graham Jordan

Working from a previous study of abstracted halftone patterns from figurative paintings, this project applied the logic to a geometrical transformation of the image, intending to act as if they had been folded and placed into a corner. Interacting within that corner, the plane bends and distorts in order to engage the formal properties it is presented with.

Cropped selections of abstractions from "Portrait of Leonilla" with curated misregistrations

Located in the physical space of the building's actual corner, the image itself becomes something of an abstracted abstraction. This process destabilizes the relationship one holds with the corner and calls into question the pertinence and certainty of a seemingly straightforward reading.
