Throughout the house, there are seventeen switch plates, all but two bear a single switch, these outliers feature three switches of relative similarity, and two identical ones respectively. The switches throughout the house might be categorized within one of two types,...

My assumption about this project was that it would lead to a sort of abstract portrait of the house that I currently occupy and from which I have drawn much of my recent imagery. What I think has occurred, at least so far, shares more with my paintings than I had antic...

It’s funny to me that, before I had started my way across the bathroom, it seemed to me that there really wasn’t all that much on its walls. Here, standing in its doorway to a hallway on the second storey of our home, I find myself thinking the same thing about my imme...

The first issue that I encounter with this project (the only one so far, but I imagine that there will be more) is that of its origin. If the coming series of posts is to in one way provide a sort of tour of the environment from which I draw much of the imagery that is...
