“The FlexSpace is pleased present a two-person exhibit exploring ideas, new possibilities and practices in architecture from both a visual artist and a seasoned architect. As preparation and continual dialogue for this exhibit unfolds.

Shir Ende
Through drawing, print, performance, and video, Shir Ende uses a degree of speculative thinking to explore movement within modern space. Ende works to reduce the “bigness” of architecture, re-imagining built structures as intimately scaled forms generated by movement.

Lancer Livermont
The works of this exhibit explore a design process of drawing and making for three simple projects including a beehive, totem, and sauna. Unlike the conventional architectural design process where a project develops through iterations studied by separate overlay, or the digital design process of iteration through algorithm, the process for these works developed through consolidating systems of site, structure, program, imagery, drafting, and sketching into compound drawings where multiple orientations operate simultaneously and from which physical constructions of the projects were extracted and fabricated.” – Camille Silverman
