Raster Fireplace

Many years ago, the hearth was the center of family life. Cooking was done, stories were told, children played. Over time, we lost the connectivity that this place in the household represented and replaced it with non-interactive TVs. The word “raster” refers to the pixels which make up a television picture. The blocks that make up the surround are meant to represent conversations, stories shared, face-to-face interactions. The Raster Fireplace is an attempt to recall the central connection of the past using the language of today.
