Welcome to the Boston Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Frank Poor describes his process this way: “For years now, I have returned to my native Southeast [USA] to photograph architecture and landscapes. These visits have been a way of reconnecting with my primary visual language. The resulting images are printed on various substrates and become the surfaces of three-dimensional architectural objects. The images of building are thus merged with their three-dimensional models. This presents two contradicting ways of telling, one through image and one through form. For me, that contradiction mirrors the slippage between our memories and what can be known about a place. That slippage has increasingly become the subject of my work”.
