Description

This work explores the language found in a 1940's architects journal. The visual and textual language of the journal reflects the post war era dominated by a masculinity concerned with concrete and modernist building. The work is layered with salvaged fragments of found drawings and papers including excerpts from journals that contain the voices of a number of other female voices, referencing a domesticity normally hidden from view. The book visually and spatially explores these gendered spaces as exterior and interior patterns begin to perforate each other.
