If you ever walked into a free standing pavilion and there is a number of screens, on each screen is a different conversation. The end of every year, I look back on the year that’s passed on New Year’s Eve or something and you look back and you say what’s of value, and I’ve never had the answer that’s been based on materialism. It’s always been a conversation that I had with someone or I’ve shared a dialogue with someone who I love or are very interested in and you kind of live with those comments. They become part of you. I want to find a way to capture those elusive conversations and those finite moments in time and to bring them together, to let them collide and create a structure that I can then share with others.
You kind of see a similar sense of cycling movement. You can’t live next to factories without being influenced by them; it’s like living next to a train track or something. There’s no way that doesn’t influence you, it’s just going to subconsciously get in your head whether you like it or not.
My interest in society’s obsession with identity because I’m not sure that I really believe identify exists.

You’re creating this vessel for this idea and you’re trying to cut a shape out of all this nonsense.
The architectural pavilion changes from day to night. In the daytime, I feel it’s a space where you could almost lose track of time in a certain way. Then at night time, the interior walls open up and close from within so it creates kind of a circular structure where you see the projections at different sides of it.
Everything is highly edited, it is reduced down to it essence. I wanted those few sentences that kind of gave an opening to a door and allows you into someone’s body of work.
