Eidolon Point Eidolon Point is an aparition of a place. Within this liminal state between going and gone, the bones of architecture take on new forms to create spaces are neither inside or outside, neither completely real or completely imagined. At the heart of this series are photographs of North American architectural ruins, places where the prescribed boundaries of buildings are malleable. Roofs collapse and funnel in the elements, walls crumble allowing unencumbered access into the interior, unique and unpredictable structures manifest from their compromised original forms. These works are an amalgam of spaces we lived in and now can live without. As they cross the boundaries of structural dematerialization they pose the question, does architecture have an afterlife? The works in Eidolon Point imagine these relics a miracle of a body with a soul, visualizing the place they inhabit when one leaves the other.
