Statement

I am an architect who both resides and practices in New York.  Both of my parents are artists, and I am always concerned with the design aspects of the architectural profession.

The ever-changing character of the contemporary architectural office, where standard tools become obsolete, in lieu of digital technology, inspires my work on collection of necklaces and later on different other art forms. For my project “Recycling of the Architectural Office” I began reusing rubber bands as well as other office supplies.

The rubber bands became my material of choice
