Itinerant Architectures is an ongoing series that engages the notion of architectural time, while addressing identity, transience, decay and the quality of witness in buildings. It considers architecture as transient sculptural system and the evolution of the contemporary mind’s refined ablity for collaging disparate images and data. The structural identities of buildings are recreated through architectural intervention, utilizing the direct actions of cutting, superimposing or adorning. The first work in the series cut a cathedral out of a trashed mobile home trailer in the California wilderness.  The same cathedral image became a slow-to-evaporate ceremonial water drawing in an abandoned hotel in Memphis, Tennessee, and later, a 20’ performance drawing in the Funkhaus in the former East Berlin.  The work series continues globally, broadly combining architectural forms, both sacred and profane.
