Gabrielle Teschner

(b 1981United States. )

Teschner is interested in the ways structural integrity is either preserved or disrupted in architectural forms. She draws comparisons between structural objects and structured knowledge; the stacking of information reliably and incrementally onto frameworks. Each brick and stair-step are a part of something larger, though complete in themselves. Teschner isolates these elements as a means of weighing their significance outside of the sum of their parts.

She describes her latest work: “These drawings, toward sculptures, address the division of days into measurable hours—the squaring of a round globe. It is by this process that an arch or a dome is built, a curve composed of many straight lines.”
