Specters of Capital: An Exploration in Architecture and Identity explores architectural structures as both repositories and as vehicles for memory and provide a framework through which culture and identity can be expressed. The work does not act merely as a method of documentation, but a sociopolitical/socioeconomic commentary on the effects of avarice, outsourcing, deregulation, neoliberalism, obsolescence, and international finance capital upon communities throughout the world. Within the realm of Jacques Derrida’s theory of Hauntology, the paintings speak of the slow disintegration of the future, and the abysmal fragmentation of the past. Learn more
