Deconstructivist Architecture @ MoMA (1988)

"The projects in this exhibition mark a different sensibility, one in which the dream of pure form has been disturbed. It is the ability to disturb our thinking about form that makes these projects deconstructive. The show examines an episode, a point of intersection between several architects where each constructs an unsettling building by exploiting the hidden potential of modernism."

– Phillip Johnson and Mark Wigley, Excerpts from Deconstructivist Architecture

Press Release:

From Ovid's Metamorphoses

" Knowledge of the world means dissolving the solidity of the world."

Michel Gondry.

In the next few months I hope to create full-scale installations that will engage the spectator whilst also confusing them. The instability of these installations may connote the mood of the times or perhaps the mental disposition of the viewer. Michel Gondry has always been an inspiration to me, but now it is his set designs that provide another level of possibility in my work.

Here he is on the set of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
