Sentient architecture seems like the subject matter of science fiction but Jeff Austin’s contribution to the Make Space booth says otherwise. Materials from the site are composed into a delicate organic framework: metal wires and poles become ribs, stones mimic vital organs, threads resemble a complex network of veins and nerves. The balancing act these sculptural components find themselves in presents a kind of equilibrium albeit a vulnerable one. I get the sense that the heavy footsteps of an intoxicated patron could knock Austin’s piece out of homeostasis and into a terminal condition. And the metal bone that leads through the ceiling? Somewhere in a dark boiler room this architectural organism is replicating.
