The Column is a sculptural object referring in its visual expression to self-made improvements to the interiors or exteriors. I have an interest for household tools or building elements that serve unexpected purposes and the new spatial meanings they create. Concrete poured in a pit and an old glass pipe replacing a fence retaining wall can become part of an imaginary ornate portico. These so-called courtyard “frankensteins” are usually found in environments where, for financial or ideological reasons, disused objects are resurrected by finding unexpected uses for them. I believe that such environmental improvements playfully transform an imitation into a real object.
