This project was made with the help of Design Graduate student and Furniture maker Kyle Wallace
I devised a wire tripod that held the 4S iPhone lens a consistent and proper range from the surfaces (see video) so the photos I took easily printed at a full, 1:1 scale. This method was used to photograph every surface of the small, one-room house—from the exterior blocks (and the ivy growing on them) to the ceiling, floor, rugs, pillows, books and chairs inside.

The photos were printed on regular bond paper, and painstakingly adhered, one by one, with wheat paste to a full-scale wooden shell of the house. The house was dismantled and moved to the Worthington gallery, where it was reassembled so visitors could walk around and through it. According to one reviewer, "The effect is amazing, like an assembled panoramic, fractured, with a cubist sensibility."
