Typological Arrangements
A decontextualization of features in order to elicit a reaction ​
With this series, I wanted to take a closer look at abnormalities within a space, and to explore what functions they serve, if any. These photographs are of circular holes in walls and floors across Carnegie Mellon University's campus. I personally find myself wondering why these holes exist in surfaces that are meant to be solid, and if someone took the time to make them, what they are used for. Although often eery and ignored, I discovered that people occasionally interact with these in a playful way (ex. the first and third images, which show other objects that were placed in the holes). 
While a typology is traditionally a documentation of many similar things, I thought that the most meaningful takeaway from this collection was the trace of human existence left upon purposely solid surfaces.
