[ building nature, 2017/ - ]

When considered in terms of aesthetics, nature is the cultural construction of a human desire. As an expression, 'building nature' evokes two complementary readings: to build nature (a utopia), and the nature of building (the act itself). The simulacrum is undertaken as a symbolic act of displacement, researching a speculative balance between design and indeterminacy, envisioning the paradox of constructing chance and the becoming of things
