As It Was (As It Were) is a mixed media installation that uses photography, drawing and construction materials to dissect the psychological space of memory – specifically the memory of home. It blends the familiar with the unfamiliar to challenge associations we have with common architectural structures. The installation celebrates memory’s inaccuracies, its narrative gaps and the way we put the pieces together.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
