Forms & Records

Forms & Records was created at the now defunct darkroom located in Mies Van Der Rohe's Crown Hall building at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), formerly the Institute of Design. Legendary photographers worked in this space, in the basement under and next to the architecture school, forging a legacy of creative photographers over multiple generations. 

I heard that the darkroom was going to be repurposed so I asked if I could use it beforehand. The photograms are made with 45 RPM funk and soul records, plastic geometric shapes, and parts of discarded architectural models made by IIT students.
