"John Ruskin proposed that we seek two things from our buildings. We want them to shelter us. And we want them to speak to us - to speak to us of whatever we find important and need to be reminded of."
-The Architecture of Happiness by Alain De Botton
“Being In” was exhibited at The Union Hall above Bar Marco at 2216 Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh, PA between March 10 and April 30, 2016. The exhibition explores our physical and emotional relationship with space, depicted as drawn moments on paper. Being: as self, one, individual. Being in: as looking inward, entering into something or someplace, becoming smaller, allowing the self to be overcome. Being in, builds a relationship with space that draws within while extending beyond, creating a spatial partnership with both the internal and external self.
