Havenhurst
2005/2011
card/paper, 368 pcs
56" x 80" x 1", variable

Havenhurst is an expansive landscape of swimming pools. Constructed of gray card and paper, pieces may be added and the whole reconfigured with each installation. It is a work in progress, as well, in which each unit, though complete and autonomous, only truly functions relative to its position in the grid. The rigid confines of each square frames shapes ranging from organic to geometric. They are, though, both in color and shape poor artifice, never truly evoking the nature they intend to resemble. Lacking all supporting elements (homes, automobiles, streets, a population) Havenhurst is a mere fragment of a community and a dysfunctional fantasy.
