48 Characters
Ann Arbor, Michigan
2013, Complete

Forty-Eight Characters is an installation at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture. Four carved pedestals are arranged in the gallery, each encrusted with a group of “balloon animals” made by casting plaster inside latex balloons. The project is a thought experiment: what if architecture were made of characters instead of self-similar repetitive units like bricks?
