  • Extrusion, 2017

    Built at the RMIT Design Hub gallery. A forgotten alcove is extended out into the space of the gallery, repeating and continuing the perforated wall panels of the gallery. A small door opens onto a crawlspace lined with perforated galvanized steel sheet, affording a passageway through this extrusion. Upon reaching the end of the crawlspace, one can stand up in this tall, narrow alcove, looking out through layers of glass (including a sliding glass door) towards the exterior of the building. The interior volume of this extrusion, above the crawlspace, is filled with ventilation ducts and electrical cables, suggesting a utilitarian function for this construction as part of the building's operation.
