Product Description
BK-12: "As Built - As Lived" by NEMESTUDIO

AS BUILT - AS LIVED  is a sampling of models within a model. The project piles together six models, each of which presenting the close-up view of an eccentric as-found detail located in the area spreading out as Borough Park, Kensington, Ocean Parkway, and Midwood in Brooklyn. While the grouping of these details is accumulative, non-hierarchical, and flattened in terms of scale and category, their presentation is dead-pan in articulation. Similar to as-built drawings that reveal all changes made to the specifications and working drawings during or after construction, each of the six details is presented with its full articulation either as a three-dimensional replica or a two-dimensional projection of the detail’s perspective view as a relief model.

These details are surrounded by several out-of-scale entourage objects that each depict diverse everyday activities in the city: a giant sweeper leaning onto a wall, an over-scaled abandoned bike on the street, barricades for construction, irregularly placed garbage cans right after a weekly trash collection, an overturned plastic bottle case after a weekend BBQ, etc. Presented as seemingly ordinary but real participants of the collective image of New York, both the details (as built) and the entourage (as lived) gain new meanings when assembled together as a possible souvenir for the city. They present a sample collection from the Earth, an odd grouping of items deprived of their original purpose, material, and scale. In this way, AS BUILT - AS LIVED  is an invitation to consider the city as a pile of material accumulation and a set of incongruous subtleties that are all enabled to coexist together on the same space of representation.
