New Entropy: Exposing Architectural Disorder in Contemporary Spaces
by Gillen, Carolyn, M.F.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2016, 30; 10129571
Abstract (Summary)

In an effort to unveil the underlying potency of architecture I take banal structures and give them a dynamic intervention. Basic architectural forms are manipulated in a way that alters our relationship to them. Once ordinary, the forms are now anomalistic. It is through this surreal reinterpretation of form and space I hope people are encouraged to examine the world around them. By unconventionally combining materials associated with contemporary building practice, or reinterpreting their functionality, I aim to displace the familiar and emphasize the tension inherent in places we think we know.
