Untitled (the edifice. restored. veers/exalts but was not total)
The decision to restore a structure is a precise intervention in which its possessor has discovered or rediscovered (a) distinguished characteristic(s) that over time have faded. To restore is an effort to return to a previous setting that operates against time by repairing what appears to be decayed and removes particular narratives that mark a space. However, despite the efforts and techniques utilized, a restored space can never exist in its original condition. It must look toward new narratives and embrace new potential.
‘Untitled (the edifice. restored. veers/exalts but was not total)’ is a series of digital illustrations that attempts to investigate the transition between ruined and restored spaces and the movement of time.
