Built spaces contain their own contours and topographies. This work is a methodological destruction that amplifies existing weathered traces and parses through what’s been removed.

Patterns of erosion are produced by natural processes of decay. On both natural and manmade landscapes, these patterns reflect the characteristics of the weathering process. In an excavation, these behaviors are limited by one’s approach to the place. It is often the rules of excavation that inform an understanding of what’s been found.
