Presented at the Penny Gallery, University of Lethbridge, in June 2023, my Thesis Project, Attic Foot and Elbow to Tip of Middle Finger, consists of three primary thematic arcs organized into chapters: “Stair Iterations,” “Window Meditations,” and “Systems of Measure” – that together represent the culmination of two years of research, writing and creative activities. The defense of this work concludes in an exhibition that centers around five main projects: Stair Iteration III: Gamma, Retrospect, Near Poet, Ropes and Rulers and Growth Chart | Social Body. The exhibition focuses on the built environment while considering its relation to formal, bureaucratic, and cultural structures and systems. By separating windows and stairs from their usual placement within an architectural space, recontextualizing and altering these standard architectural elements, I consider perceptual changes in scale, memory and its fallibility, the recollection of objects, time and space, alteration of convention, as well as instruments and systems of measurement.
