Sometimes when I sit on the subway, I find myself looking at poorly-designed ads and I try to fix them in my head. I might change the typeface, remove a shape, or maybe add a little bit of negative space. And when I reach the Charles river, I look out of the window and see imaginary shapes interacting with the city. I wanted to bring these shapes to our home, so I started sketching. As I moved the shapes around, they connected and created beautiful compositions. After that I started cutting and painting the Styrofoam to resemble the shapes in my drawings. Many hours later, the artwork was done. I was happy I had brought my imaginary shapes into reality.
