Jiffy Cities, Patent Drawings


Everything that I make comes from a desire to be mak​ing​, the process always outweighing the product. My process is printmaking. Without a printing press or shop, I look to a process that feels as natural and satisfying as printmaking feels: something focused in time, repetition, and ephemerality. However unnamable it feels right now, this is the product. ​Jiffy Cities, Patent Drawings​ began with creating one model a day for one month. My drawings serve as documentation of the models, more than any photograph ever could. I can unfold them, rebuild them, patent them, and throw them away now.
