Inspiration: As a future architecture student, I am very interested in the artistic elements within architecture. I have recently studied the beautiful but disturbing nature of abandoned buildings, being particularly inspired by Anselm Kiefer, and currently I am exploring the relationship between art and architecture by looking at artists such as Rachel Whiteread, Laurie Simmons and Carl Andre. Their work has progressed my understanding of architecture within art and inspired me to create my own pieces based on this relationship.
Description: This piece of work was the result of combining my opinions over art and architecture upon writing my essay examining this. I wanted to create something that was art, but which at the same time was nothing really more than a building. I designed 5 shapes of wood which would slot together to form a house, and then painted each side in a representation of the exterior walls. I included a working door from a dolls house, and used my essay to wallpaper the inside. I feel that it represents the middle ground between art and architecture, being usable but at the same time useless, and combining the three dimensional with the two dimensional, similar to my previous work as inspired by Banksy.
