SPQR

Last of the remaining holiday carpets, utility cover imprint by collective movement.

Table Setting

Getting set up for the opening of Cinque Mostre at the Academy. Erik on the ladder fixing the camera for our installation “Dinner Conversation”.

Texture

Sunset at Borghese Gardens and this wall was amazing.

Pool

Aside from my studio the billiard room is one of my favorite spaces at the academy. Valerio shooting with Liam and Jeff looking on.

Temple

6am running by the Pantheon.

Fountain

One of my favorite places to get a drink on my runs at piazza del popolo. I’ve come through here early morning runs and found a bar of soap and an overflowing basin, bather nowhere in site.

Housing

Went out to Corviale to visit the social housing project. The complex is huge at a kilometer in length, the mailboxes have their own story to tell.

Model

Experimenting with forms for new types of river islands. I set the cast pieces on the banks before the river rose to see how the flood dynamics would interact with them.

Cappella

We had an amazing visit to the Capella Paolina at the Vatican. It was designed by Sangallo with Michelangelo frescoes. The chapel is used for ceremony when a new pope is elected.

Acqua

Our neighborhood water fountain Acqua Paolo has a view to match the scale of the structure. Another piece of papal infrastructure it celebrated the reopening of an aqueduct. I end most of my runs here by scooping up some water.
