WAREHOUSE CAST

1994

Christie Pearson with Yvette Jancso

We created this project as architecture students over many weeks. Gauze casts using flour and water paste were layered onto the surfaces of an old warehouse.  As they were slowly dried and plied from the surfaces, textures, sediments, and latent spaces emerged from the process as we peeled and pulled. Lighting brought these spaces alive and became the setting for a celebration.
