master plan (2013)

"for the first part of this series, wright created a mould in the form of an L-shaped suburban dwelling, and set out a series of sand castles on his local beach. This scale-model suburbia was washed away by the tide, which perhaps urges us to consider the relative transience of so solid a symbol of the american dream, particularly since the 2007 subprime mortgage collapse. "

artist’s statement: 
"In master plan, I am conflating a child's sandcastle with architecture typifying postwar american suburbia. This three-part series culls artifacts from my childhood, investigating suburbia in its vision and legacy.phase One focuses on the mass-produced tract house, re-examining it as symbol for the model american dream."
