Cinderblocks: the series. Hand woven (on a cardboard loom) different designs of cinderblocks.
Inspired by cinderblocks.
I had to buy some out of necessity. Without a bed frame, I figured that six cinderblocks and two sets of wooden pallets would suffice.
When I moved locations, my father, who was helping me move, looked at me with sympathetic eyes. Do we really need to bring the cinderblocks? Yes dad, we do. Down three flights of stairs, and then up one set to my new apartment.
Maybe it is something about their versatility that I found beautiful. Their affordability and tactility that inspired me to make a series of their lovely simplicity. There is some type of beauty found in raw necessity.
