Project description:

Boole consists of a series of abstract works, which are both based on and delimited by vernacular Ikea furniture and basic Boolean operations used to make 3D computer models. These compositions are produced by making subtractions in the furniture using CNC controlled cuts, and through the addition of punched, folded, riveted and powder-coated aluminum boxes. This series is a meditation on the machine of abstraction, seeking to reconcile the disparate methodologies of Modernist intuitive composition with programmatic Minimalist commitments to generating sequences and permutations of forms. Similarly, they attempt to navigate a shared formal vocabulary between architectural modeling and sculpture. [ - ]
