The Leftovers

Yale School of Architecture, Spring 2015

Course: Drawing Projects

Critic: Turner Brooks

This documentation of detritus evolved from an attention to those objects left behind in daily life - debris on the sidewalk, road kill, decaying flowers, and the leftovers of meals. What began as an interest in the residue of daily life on the sidewalks of New Haven emerged as a gritty reconstruction of 17th century Dutch Still Lifes. Exploring multiple types of media, paper, scale, and size this project seeks to transform these “leftovers” into both figure and ground through intentional still lifes that give them a new identity and energy.
