Doric Collapse, single-channel video, 16 minutes, 2022
Doric Collapse captures a performance of archetypal Greek architecture, 3D printed and rigged as a push-puppet. As hidden strings are released and pulled, and the structure falls and rises, the iconic form strives to remake itself, but fails each time in small or spectacular ways. The struggle is both humorous and surprisingly suspenseful, but weighted by the temple’s symbolic association with the history and current state of Western democracies.
