The building itself has a complex spatial sequence of ribbon windows and corridors, with views in and out onto other interiors or the surrounding vegetation.
I took up this theme of visual layers and superimpositions in the multipart installation Dream switch. During my stay in Rome in 2005 I was particularly interested in modernist functional architecture—post offices, the 1960s Olympic buildings—and the relationship between stadiums, ancient temples, and housing complexes.
The architectural details serve as the foil for a conceptual examination of the construction of space—a theme that is constitutive of both architecture and painting, from which I originally come.
