Gradually/We Became Aware/Of a Hum in the Room
presents a temporally distributed architectural structure conceived for two locations: the high desert of Joshua Tree, California and the sixth floor of a building in the heart of downtown New York City. The structure, which may be understood as an attempt to bring these disparate landscapes into proximity, folds together two possible states. In the desert, it exists as a triangular building divided into three identical rooms. In the city, the same structure is re-assembled inside-out: the previously exterior walls are unfolded to become the interior walls of a triangular enclosure now surrounded by (rather than containing) the walls and contents of the three interior rooms, metaphorically folding the vast desert landscape into the center and positing the interior of the building as a landscape without limits. The mutable structure becomes a third term in each state, conjoining, rather than opposing, what is here and what is there, what is inside and what is outside. In other words, the structure, conceived as it is for two locations, becomes a complex site, like ourselves, of exchange between interior and exterior.
