Final Statement:

My work reflects population movement and changing notions of home idealized in a simple geometric shape: the cube. From box-framed houses to the box shaped cubicles we work in, this transcendent shape signifies the spaces where most people spend their time. Thirty vellum boxes represent population growth and movement across the United States over the past decade. From left to right, each column of five boxes represents data from the US Census Bureau indicating growth over the past decade for California, Texas, Colorado, Illinois, Florida and New York. Population change is reflected in lines of thread. Simple, abstract flight patterns over each region are printed on the back of each box. The fabric backdrop is inspired by the flight patterns of the entire United States. To further represent transition and migration, I suspend the boxes as if in flight.
