delft

I worked for three months in an apartment in Delft that was slated for demolition. In this room, I stripped the wallpaper off the walls, cut it into new shapes, and reapplied those shapes to the wall. I also used detritus and dust for some of the pattern. I made a faux stained glass window out of duct tape and cellophane, built houseplants out of broken crockery, and collected discarded objects to create a sort of monument house in the apartment block.
