Death of an Axon
2013

A proposal for a monument to the axon consisting of a two-dimensional collage of a chronological record of the axonometric type and three-dimensional collage which combines 13 iconic projects in space. The monument represents various allegiances including Corbusian modernism, utopian-leftist-rationalism, theoretical and philosophical postmodernism, and deconstructivsm.
