Amber Baechler et Mark Baechler
“Our work resides at the intersection of art and architecture.
We use artistic processes and the gallery to explore architectural ideas.
These ideas are developed using drawings, models and installations.
Architectural space is revealed through light and the absence of light. Without shadow space appears to have no depth. We use graphite – which absorbs all light – to draw the absence of light and create architectural space. Models are used to investigate scale. They collapse and expand ideas and spaces. They make clear complex phenomena so that new associations and understandings of architecture can be drawn. Installations provide a liminal space in which ideas and representations transition to reality. Through installations we realize architectural imagination.”
