Artist Statement:


    Animation is dynamic, architecture is static. Animation renders on a flat surface, architecture is three dimensional. Animation requires a medium, architecture is medium and content at once. The projected artwork is fusing the inherent qualities of animation with those of architecture. It utilizes architecture as a canvas for animation and utilizes animation as an emphasis of hidden dynamics in architecture. It virtually breaks walls, transforms concrete surfaces into human faces and let geometry dance. It dissolves the rigidness of architecture by mapping animated projections on its surface and embodies animated shapes through physical structures.
