Artist Statement:

    818 Cubed uses morphing to change the apparent shape of the ICC into other internationally iconic skyscrapers. The sequence begins by highlighting the natural shape of the ICC. This is next “morphed” into a contour shape representing Taipei 101 (Taiwan). Nine structures are represented in the sequence. Various formal strategies are used for structures that do not conform to the slender, singular shape of ICC. In terms of sequencing, 818 Cubed relates the formal qualities of each structure as well as global economic and political contexts. Accompanying audio comes from airports of various cities where the towers are located.
