dc.description.abstract Something Out of Nothing developed out of a growing curiosity to explore the margins between public and private space. The spaces that surround us can be defined through our relationship to the landscape. This definition goes beyond ephemeral property boundaries, and more in the direction of how we emotionally consider location, adjacencies, land use, ecology, and the architecture of a space. Certain cultural, economic, and legal designations exist to dictate what can happen in these spaces. These conditions dictate an individual’s behavior within the umbrella of society. The ambiguities within these fragmented spaces, however, create circumstances that allow individuals to act outside of what society expects. The work in Something Out of Nothing examines the cultural conditions that preface how we experience space by seeing what can happen when our connection to the landscape is severed and our behavior falls outside of the reach of society.
