Untitled (Conversation)

By  Jo Ray 2015
From a series of experimental works exploring 'Model-ness'. Performance to camera in which my hands are reflected in the glass of a monitor. The monitor is displaying footage from an interview I made with an Architectural Technology specialist, in which he explained his use of physical models in an area which now primarily relies on digital simulations. My hands are inexpertly carving a turnip into a dome shape. Brunelleschi reportedly carved into turnips or wax in order to demonstrate particular complexities of constructions to the craftsmen constructing his designs for the dome in Florence.
