“Only philosophers embark on this perilous expedition to the outermost reaches of language and existence. Some of them fall off, but others cling on desperately and yell at the people nestling deep in the snug softness, stuffing themselves with delicious food and drink. ‘Ladies and Gentlemen,’ they yell, ‘we are floating in space!’ But none of the people down there care.” from Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder

evacuated space is a series of radiographic images of vacuum tubes and other thermionic valves. These devices control the flow and movement of electrons within that evacuated space. Much like our planet floating in space, these electrons have a temporary space to live. This body of work relates the architecture of an electron’s world to the architecture of the human world.
