Buildings and Infrastructure, depicts fields of pipes, tubes, drains, transformers, compressors and connectors.

It’s the stuff behind the plaster, inside the walls. It’s there all the time, unseen under the facade.

I have passwords and key chains and lists of appliances that manage gadgets connected to the infrastructure. There are circuits, and portals on my computer, and around the city. Construction sites expand and populate. The buildings are like bodies with all the messy parts under the skin. They have personalities, frailties and complications. All of them are different and similar, some fitting in or standing alone.

To make things function, sometimes messy connections are necessary. 

As a background to the building paintings, the painted wallpaper forms an ongoing pattern, but there is no repetition as every part is unique. With no singularity, everything is related, inter-dependant and connected.
