You See AC focuses on the metalwork associated with air conditioning as the subject of enameled steel or copper panels. Incorporated into the fabric of the rooms we inhabit, they are part of a larger story of our relationship to the natural environment. Living in Texas, one becomes acutely aware of our dependence on artificial cooling each summer. The availability of affordable “man-made weather” has affected the political landscape as well as the physical one in myriad ways, which I continue to
explore. I am particularly interested in its expression as a form of invisible industrial craft that is woven into the fabric of domestic and professional spaces in the guise of louvered vents and diffusers. While designed to be homogeneous and discreet, what these details represent politically and environmentally are \ extreme. It is my hope that this body of work will bring that complicated relationship to the fore.
