In The Wake of The Bind We often speak of old, neglected buildings in anthropomorphic terms as having “good bones”. As such, the spectre of death already haunts the language we use to describe these forgotten places. What if, in their final demise, buildings were released from their foundations? What new forms would they take? In the Wake of the Bind presents an otherworldly state, free of context and history, where architecture begins life anew. Brick, mortar, wood and stone - once the building blocks of civilization - are reassembled here to present a vision of the world bereft of humanity and one in which architecture has an afterlife.
