Bricks are solid, substantial, but often a veneer: real ones front other structural systems, and Home Depot sells fake surfaces that resemble them. They are legible as a simple 2D pattern of red rectangles divided by white lines, but their true (or approximated) texture is familiar and appealing, too—enough so that we might choose to leave them exposed inside our homes. BRICKS explores the brick’s ability to translate across appearances that are analog or digital, real or imaginary, tasteful or vulgar, oversimplified or overexaggerated, willfully entering the psychological realm behind these many expressions.
