Ghost House

By diminishing the boundary between the architecture and its wooded site, this installation reveals both the humanly imagined and the dynamic natural aspects of the landscape. The installation also suggests the temporal and spatial tensions between them. Drawing on the imagery of ruins and abandoned buildings, the architectural fragments evoke the ghostly outlines of a vanished place and memories of an earlier time. However, these imagined outlines also enclose a dynamic physical landscape, a living forest, expanding and ever changing. Literally rooted in the present, this natural setting is defined by its architectural elements, but not displaced by them.
