Installation > Fracturing Half Moon

Sunroom Project Space at Wave Hill

In the Sunroom, Amir Hariri creates multiple installations constructed of concrete, wood and other building materials—along with a wall drawing— that connect to his architectural research of the Bronx and Wave Hill. His project Fracturing Half Moon features the visceral and formal qualities of decay as a way to communicate history, memory and experience of particular sites. Using building deterioration as a metaphor, Hariri explores rapid technological and developmental transformations, as well as their social and ethical implications.
