CHAPTER 1 THE ABSENCE


INTRODUCTION

The journey started with fibers and yarns. Through the immersive

and meditative process of textile making – from materials hardly grabbable with fingers to objects one could inhabit – ideas were spatialized. It eventually occurred to me that these objects became a “place” with traces of the inhabitant – the very traces of existence emphasizes the absence. I continue to search for and capture this in my work.

My interest lies in the expanded field of sculpture, an interdisciplinary

approach towards the making of place whether it be real or speculative. I advocate for public space of solitude and contemplation. Through the lens of art installation, landscape architecture, and architecture, I explore the qualities of place that can arouse curiosity and imagination, as well as influence meaningful experiences and connections. At various scales, I attempt to transform site via minimal intervention, while acknowledging time and its spatial trace. My work is an act of framing and seeding possibilities.


WEAVING THE WOVEN

Sullivan Galleries, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL 2012 Weaving with objects - baskets, rocking chairs, toys Advisor: Nick Cave Are we more often surprised by how long we can remember or how soon we can forget? Weaving a woven structure is like being aware of awareness, remembering of remembrance. Colorful moments are mixed together, giving a neutral tone from afar and becomes more vivid once activated. Fighting against the loss of memory, I thread through every tangible gap between warps and wefts, only to build a space that I can never enter again. The isolated absence becomes a completed vision of all I have missed.

FIRE NO ESCAPE

Sullivan Galleries, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL 2013 Weaving with objects, multimedia installation Advisor: Nick Cave Leaving city X, I took with me a visual vocabulary of the elevated rails, the endless fire escapes, the dreaded tunnel, the stained glass window, the fast delicate passing scene through the train window‌ to depict the placeless light and shadow, to later recall to mind the long forgotten moment when lives were pressing so close to me, yet so far away.

CHAPTER 2 FRAME OF CURIOSITY


AROMATIC MAZE

Fisher Hill Reservoir, Brookline, MA 2014 Harvard Graduate School of Design Instructor(s): Anita Berrizbeitia & Luis Callejas This is a maze with ephemeral hints, varying aromatic blossoms. This is a garden of surprise as one can stumble upon a new door, a hidden room, and layers of framed views. This a place of adventure as one can climb hills over walls and stroll through windows.


AROMATIC MAZE


AROMATIC MAZE


THIS IS (NOT) A…

Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens, Québec, Canada 2017 Design competition Temporary garden At a distance, the installation appears as a floating garden pronounced by a white wall backdrop. As one draws closer, a jungle gym emerges as the primary structure of these elements, as well as a mediator of experiences. The recreational jungle gym was adopted for it being an iconic centerpiece in early playgrounds. Here, it supports 50 different species that bloom over the span of the festival, chosen for their aromatic, tactile, acoustic, and visual interests. Through sensorial guidance, people can climb and crawl through the jungle interacting with these plants at unexpected/unfamiliar angles and distances. Between the jungle gym bars are varying open spaces and seating that encourage social exchange. As a unique surprise, at the core of the structure is a grand room referencing a herbarium or a salon-style museum. It is accessed by crossing under the bars and beneath suspended wall panels that split the installation into two distinct spaces. Where there is an elevated plant on one side, a portion of it is displayed on the other, such as a flower, a leaf, a stem, a bud, etc. Plants penetrate the wall through carefully curated small openings within a wood frame conveying a museum setting. While the jungle encourages active play, the museum draws people’s attention to the minute detail, revealing the intricacy and delicacy of individual plants as living art.

METROPOLITAN NATURE

2015 Harvard Graduate School of Design Instructor(s): Ken Smith with Distinction There are features of Broadway Junction that people commonly regard as eyesores that can be valued as or transformed into unnatural urban nature. The elevated railway as a piece of infrastructure creates a complete “ecology” of place. People navigate through the city following distinct mental landmarks. When one sees something seemingly familiar from past experience, but not exactly as expected, it travels in the brain back-and-forth between conscious and subconscious realization. The prolonged process of recognition induces curiosity and engagement, which might then lead to a sense of connection. The design intervention attempts to create a place that could register in people’s consciousness, entering their mental map of the city in a way that is fun, lively or even surreal. Through minimal interventions, uncanny infrastructural oddities are transformed into impressive urban nature.

VIDEO ESSAY

Harvard Graduate School of Design Instructor(s): Ken Smith with Distinction The project examined the role of framing as a means to alternate our way of seeing, nuance our perception of place, and formulate a statement. The video was captured through the lens of see-through mirrors, which was a conceptual and technical driver of the design process. The mirrors broke down the vanishing point created by the repetitiveness of the structure, and integrated everything into a horizon-less and bound-less space.


CHAPTER 3 PUBLIC SPACE OF SOLITUDE


GLOW IN THE PARK

Fairmount Park Reflection Pool, Philadelphia, PA 2017 Design competition Temporary art installation and event pavilion The reflection pool is transformed into a three-dimensional, multi-sensational water experience. The installation is comprised of alternating fountains of water and light; squares of pool, squares of landing; rooms of water, rooms of light. The reflection pool divides the night into a side of gathering and a side of solitude. In between the existing fountains of water, a video projection of water textures is displayed onto an elevated horizontal plane, thus forming a ‘fountain of light’. Beneath each plane is a platform bridging across the pool for people to congregate. Standing amidst the flowing light, the experience is accentuated by various sounds of water (a river stream, an ocean tide, pouring rain, etc.) emanating from a hidden speaker source. The vertical structure supporting the horizontal elevated planes is to be a light-weight steel frame system concealed by sheer and translucent panels of curtain fabric along the sides of the reflection pool. The interplay between alternating panels, fountains, and projections present a dual experience. From one side (Elevation 1), the pool can be interpreted for celebration with views of people gathering beneath light-filled canopies of water. On the opposite side (Elevation 2), the pool suggests solitude with direct views only of water fountains and the shadows and voices of the crowds faintly seen and heard beyond.

LE HARVE DE QUAY

Port of Le Havre, Le Harve, France 2016 Harvard Graduate School of Designd Instructor(s): Michel Desvigne & Inessa Hansch with Distinction De Quay is a vast, tranquil place in between the harbor and city of Le Harve. The vastness compresses everything happening in the harbor and city into a thin line between the sea and sky. The emptiness leaves room for full expression of the constantly changing light and color. The project aims to preserve the quality of the emptiness, exploring an alternative approach towards public open space. Massive landscapes are created and altered through subtle interventions, framing possibilities and engendering growth.


LE HARVE DE QUAY

The project is characterized by the existing breakwater structure at the harbor and an invisible 6.25 meter grid - the underlying guide for reconstructing the entire city atop post-WWII rubble. Gentle topographic changes are framed by breakwaters, in juxtaposition of a visible 6.25 meter grid. From a distance they are masses of water, sand, meadow, and concrete. Realized within each material is a sea garden of seaweed with a buoyant grid, sand beach secured by poles, sunken garden with mowed pockets, and plaza of posts at varying heights.


LE HARVE DE QUAY

Individuals are related to space through movement. For instance, walking along gentle slopes towards the water, people descend with the sea horizon gradually being brought up to eye level and eventually vanishing. At the end of the slope, people can hear and smell the sea with a framed view of the sky. An individual’s feeling of proximity to the sea is indeterminate. Without any specific program or function, but emptiness. What is being brought to the center of the public space is the site’s history, the passage of time, transient natural phenomena and individual perception of place.

EMERGENCE/ OCCUPATION

SUCCESSION / DECAY


ADVANCE / RETREAT

The intervention is an attempt to mediate the natural processes of erasure and render demolition occupiable. The assumption is that there is value in the space of decay. There is value in waiting for emergent processes; value in slow, patient retreat; and value in what’s left behind.

ADVANCE / RETREAT Varying both spatially and temporally from the vast [glacial] to the minute [particle], land is the physical inscription of advancing and retreating flows. This constant movement results in a successive layering of erasures and traces that define the past’s future.

their relationships to built material, specifically to create new vegetal patterns that would outlive the infrastructures themselves. Walls create wind-barriers; Foils focus rainwater; Mirrors reflect sunlight into dark interiors; and the Cap admits that some problems can’t be solved by focusing flows.

GLACIER / FORMS Glaciers are an example of slow flow. They carve out particular landforms and leave deposits that preprogram ecological services for the immediate and far future. Fertile glacial till makes rich agricultural land; outwash gravel deposits are valuable construction materials; and kettle ponds actively filter groundwater.

SUCCESSION / DECAY As these infrastructures are deployed, we are inviting the vegetal takeover of spaces where plants were previously suppressed. Wind barriers create new seed banks; redistributing rainwater encourages plant diversity; sunlight opens interiors to more than just the typical mosses and molds; and capping a site freezes its condition into the future. When our infrastructures are coupled with tactical subtractions (i.e. the removal of windows, doors, walls, etc) vegetal invasion softly accelerates the decay of these sites, blurring the line between landscape and the built environment.

TRACE / WATERSHED Accumulating over time, the physical and chemical environmental flows trace their own patterns into the land. The ecosystems we inhabit are the product of how ecological flows (wind, water, light, and nutrients) have interacted with historical and geological flows. ECO(NOMIC/LOGICAL) When comparing the scales of time of human environmental changes to geological and ecological changes, our actions appear aggressively immediate. These changes include not only development and construction, but abandonment and demolition. On our particular site - the Falmouth Technological Park at the edge of the Laurentide terminal moraine - current economic operations range from a hockey arena and a newspaper, to landfill and gravel mining, to chemical manufacturing and research on autonomous underwater vehicles. Our only assumption is that this current landscape of economic flows will inevitably change in the future, opening the question how these buildings and sites will be treated once made obsolete. FLUID / ENVIRONMENT To that end, we acknowledge economic retreat as an opportunity to reconsider our relationship to the natural processes that change landscapes. We are surrounded by mechanisms and forces of constant change, which we seek to co-opt to render their power explicit. FLOW / MEDIATION The infrastructures that we’ve designed - walls, foils, mirrors and caps - are low-tech interventions that redirect and focus environmental flows in

EMERGENCE/ OCCUPATION To occupy decay is to actively participate in the process. Because typically forceful, immediate demolition is replaced with a relatively long-term mediated decay, questions of evolving values are embedded in the management strategy. Considering the far future, we must thus assume that the agencies responsible for the site’s maintenance will change. If the spaces can be monetized, they probably will be; if not, the sites will stay in a state of permanent transition. As long as the infrastructures are deployed, a condition of informality will persist, as their spatial density prevents most formal programs. This reinforces the value of individual agency - the use value for picnickers and squatters and informal collective gathering. TRACE / ERASURE This project is an attempt to put our actions into context. Individual footfalls turn into paths, trickling streams turn into rivers, and tiny roots topple buildings. The decision of what gets erased and what persists is made independently, but cumulatively. PRECONDITION / UNCERTAINTY Varying both spatially and temporally from the vast [glacial] to the minute [particle], land is the physical inscription of advancing and retreating flows. This constant movement results in a successive layering of erasures and traces that define the past’s future. We know we are today’s glacier. What we don’t know is exactly how our actions will precondition the future.

DRIFTING DREAM DUNES

Design competition Temporary art installation Teammates: Nelson Byun, David Pearson, Seejia Ho Two children ran round and round a sand box filled half with black sand and half with white sand. By the end of the hour all was grey and I could not turn it back again. The project is a continuously changing landscape that figures DesignMiami/ as both a temporal event and a lasting institution. Parametrically tuned tubes of various diameters couple with a timekeeping device over 2000 years old, the hourglass, to produce a generative landscape that changes throughout the day and the event in both size and color.

DRIFTING DREAM DUNES

sandbag is re-appropriated for seating revealing new uses for a simple yet crucial component of Miami’s hurricane season. The sand from above held in a uniform grid structure, finds its way to the white concrete surface at different speeds resulting in a ground plan of subtly random, yet uniform dunes. A crane, a Miami fixture, suspends ‘the sandbox’ in a form reminiscent of the adjacent tents. By reinterpreting the hourglass through contemporary tools, layers of time and form register both an intellectual and playful exchange of DesignMiami/ attendants. A series of tubes at the northeast are timed with the work week while at the center a larger mound develops timed to the 10 day event period provoking multiple visits to witness the changing nature of the installation. As fairgoers engage the installation the colored sand mixes, further removing the sand from its initial state of uniformity.

ISRAELI LOUNGE

John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, DC 2018 Design competition Art installation and interior renovation

The proposed design for the Israeli Lounge aims to achieve monumentality via ephemerality. Beams of light shine vertically through a field of dispersed gold planes, casting onto the ground shadows of the 22 Hebrew letters. The letters are aligned at the center of the room, each slightly rotated in plan to coincide with the varying vantage points along its periphery. A seating bench gently peels from the bottom of the walls for observing, resting, and conversing. A light shelf peels from the top framing the illusion of an evening sky. The letters were implemented in the design of the room to represent the historical and contemporary spirit of Israel. Hebrew is spoken by over 9 million people worldwide and serves as the primary agent of Jewish scripture, liturgy, law, as well as linkage of culture. Furthermore, Hebrew epitomizes the miracle of Israel as its revival from a dead language has no parallel in history. For a thousand years, Hebrew has witnessed the Jewish diaspora and the long journey of its people back home. The dispersion of gold planes is emblematic of the Jews living beyond Israel – navigating through shifting historical circumstances and constant cultural exchanges, while still maintaining a distinct sense of cultural self. The light that unifies the dispersed forms into the body of Hebrew letters implies the coalescing of the Jewish people.
