For my IVP#2 project I wanted to be able to create something that maintains an element of playfulness. I played around with the idea of altering nature because we have such beautiful scenery around Durham, but kept coming back to the idea of decorating a side of a house with cards. The idea was to pattern the side making it looks like bricks, while still displaying the cards. I wanted it to be joyful, but when creating it my mind kept coming back to marriage. A house of cards, in the traditional sense is so fragile and susceptible to break, and so are the relationships we create and try to maintain within our homes. These two sides of the house: the joyful and the wary both came out when looking at my piece, but at different times during the day. This difference was unexpected, but I was happy to see my thought processes in the final product.
