Working collaboratively, Shana McCaw and Brent Budsberg of Milwaukee create miniature architectural forms-houses, telephone poles, farm buildings-and insert them into unexpected contexts, like the back of a sofa or the middle of a gallery wall. The effect is disorienting and unsettling. Weathered, charred, or upended, these miniature structures reverberate with a sense of loss, recording tragedies, transitions, and the passage of time. Their work exploits the tension between the notion of a house as an emblem of shelter and security and the reality of its inevitable decay. More broadly, it suggests the impossibility of protection in an unstable world.
