Prototype of My Rome

Prototype (my Rome)

Installation view of multiple pieces of architectural sculpture in concrete, plaster, wood and paper, shown here 5′x40′x30′, 1999

A study of Roman architecture and how these proportions relate to social dynamics. Arches of two circle geometry represent feelings of inclusion or being overpowered. Three sphere geometrical architecture recalls the Trinity, the masculine nature of the religious architecture. Like the ruins, the floor plans and geometry are more visible as the structures deteriorate, revealing the inherent dynamics within the structure.
