Habitat Machines In 'Habitat Machines' my photo based architecture explores the construct of home with a series of residential buildings born of everyday objects. From Art Deco coffee pots to the Constructivist grid pattern on an old bathroom scale, I’ve searched for source materials which allude to a greater architectural doctrine usually unnoticed in these machines.  Then, by distortion of scale and context, elements of these objects are re-assembled into unique structures that are paradoxically familiar by virtue of their origins.
