Sculpted Spaces

Construction sites envision the potential for future buildings or the removal of structures deemed unworthy. To construct, one must first deconstruct. Whether through demolition or altering the natural environment, progress is impossible without this initial step. Materials, objects, and temporary installations created by workers to aid their daily activities all reveal a state of transition.

The photographs are taken on weekends when work is paused, making these visits to construction sites akin to visiting artist ateliers. During these visits, I select and photograph the work in progress. The images challenge perceptions of scale and highlight the sculptural qualities of everyday construction sites.
