Overview

Exacting Proportion is a series that takes skylines from around the world as a point of departure to explore ideas of environment and community. With influences drawn from Edward Burtynsky’s sweeping views of landscapes, Exacting Proportion points to environmental and cultural similarities between all of us, while also taking delight in the colorful differences. In this body of work, I want to make images that are earnest, contemplative, and peaceful, as well as offer a hint of humor by positioning humankind as tiny in such a large universe.

Goals

Spanning five floors, a global hedge fund’s NYC headquarters was looking for sophisticated exhibitions to match their expansive, clean design.

This exhibition demonstrated unique and innovative approaches to paper, and the artwork exhibited revels in the endless possibilities of the medium. The exhibition also highlighted the architecture and design of the office, a serene space for work, interaction, and contemplation.
