Urban/Suburban/Rural Bio-Sculptural, Experimental, Architectural + Discovery (and design impacted/inspired forms from as-built or salvages...) The work of JJ Nicholson III, raised on a large estate farm in Geneva, pays homage to a witnessed practicality associated with vernacular building. Trained in New York City and Colorado, the artist within the loosely organized studio has persistantly adapted form back to home sites around agricultural environs. Not always, is everything the "raw" idea, rather a discovery of how nature's elemental aspects effect social mechanics or alter the lexicon of ag-space. Through this examination, graphic portrayals of the architectural are documented. In the spirit of both the late Lebbeus Woods, or Asymptote Architecture (inspirations), SPaTia3 is a philosophical precept used to seek out a experimental architecture. Disparate transformative agritectural and archicultural conditions (livable permacultures), through the conveyance of the virtual and a non-obtrusive architecture, based from the salvaged and/or neglected spaces between where we "go" and where we grow food - instill hope amidst the disarray... Rhetorically, this designer asks if sustainability is attainable or does it dwell within a solution toward the epitome of the apparatus? Are there ways of using food as architecture, if waste=food? What means can be extrapolated from those often associated with food production, containerization, and commercial landscapes - and infrequent or frequent exchanges to acquire it?
In the quest for a primordial zone - the kindred spirit of the acquisition of food accompanies latent architectures, converging in some dystopian formats... The virtual work and possible environments are not to be confused as cyber virtual subterfuges, but conceptual refuges within a cyber world that nearly entirely consumes us today.
