dc.description.abstract “Wanna play carpenter? First we’ll get hammered and then I’ll nail you!” The first time I ever lied to somebody and told them I wanted to be an architect, I had just been caught skateboarding in a construction site. I had fallen and my board had gone out through the unfinished walls, so I went downstairs to get it, when there came an angry voice from behind me “What are you doing in my house?!” I panicked, and the first things out of my mouth just so happened to be “I’m very interested in architecture, and I wanted to see how a house was built.” The man was then very nice to me, gave me a tour of his soon to be house, and then told me to be careful because construction sites are dangerous places. While I no longer skateboard, nor really care how luxury houses are built, I do like the space that skateparks create. The performer, performance, and audience are all in the same place. The only other space I can think of that does that are city streets. I love cities. They can simultaneously be aesthetically pleasing, as I try and show in my prints, as well as places for collaboration or competition, like my sculpture “You Can’t Spell Party Without Art”.
