at Fahrenheit 451 House, Catskill,
 New York, 2021, Mixed textiles, existing wallpaper and other conditions Dimensions Variable

At Farenheit 451 House I intervened on the level of decor, responding directly to the wallpaper on the second floor and its state of partial removal and disintegration. I reflect on shifting aesthetic hierarchies, and relationships between taste, class, and cultural aspiration. By introducing textile materials of varied sources, functions and styles, I subsume the conventional logic of floral patterning into a very different ordering of imagery
