hello kitty is 5 apples tall.

  research project in progress
first exercise iteration: 9/25/2019

hello kitty is 5 apples tall  is an ongoing research project that explores the possibilities of utilizing architectural language to articulate the socio-political mechanisms behind the creation, circulation, and production of cartoon icons and imageries in late capitalism.

The installation shown here is the first iteration of this research. The central piece is a shape of five stacking apples supported by a structure which is inspired by the supporting structures and connections used by the curtain wall of skyscrapers.
