Material Failure: Modernist Shelter Unit

Fired Ceramic, Epoxy, Hot Glue, Masking Tape // 144″ X 132″ X 108″ // 2010-2011

Functioning as a framework for a bunker or shelter to-be, Material Failure: Modernist Shelter Unit is extremely fragile and its attempt to exist as a reinforcement structure is pathetic and in crisis. Constructed of hand-built and assembled ceramic “re-bar”—its  failed attempt at establishing a high Modernist grid becomes evident in both the idiosyncrasies of the hand and in material failure.
