2019 Create Change Fellow
Sculpture, Architecture, Digital Drawing
As an artist and trained architect, Cheryl’s practice lies at the intersection of art, architecture, social practice and performance. She investigates the transformation of shared space over time and seeks to challenge social and political boundaries through the design and implementation of architectural interventions.
What motivates you to do what you do?
In my exploration of impermanence, an important part is choreographing situations — through transformations via site-specific spatial interventions– that harness public interaction. Architecture, at the scale of small objects as well as large buildings, affects the way we behave and the way we interact with each other. In my practice, I am interested in investigating how race and sex become embedded in architecture, and I am also interested in cultivating awareness and understanding to the way spaces change and the way they change us.
