Carbon Copies 2

Carbon Copies 2
Photo Description: My photography series, “Carbon Copies,” conceals the predictability of suburban houses through renovation with my pencil. Homes that lie in typical suburban settings often appear as pale imitations of one another. This series aims at breaking the cycle of uniformity and conformity that can be prevalent within suburban communities. In this image the cone and triangular shaped structures added on to the exterior and interior of the house. These cones displayed are very rigid and unique to any other house in the series as well as in any community. The diagonal lines you see represent either a window, transparent item, or something that is simply non existent anymore. It is up to the viewers as to how they want to interpret it.
