Sheetrock or Plywood Walls With Shapes Cut Out

This installation by American artist Scott Carter is making us view walls as…sculpture. Carter cuts out shapes from walls and formed them into furniture, like some living, human-sized puzzle.

But we can’t stop mulling the idea of cutting out shapes from plywood to give interest to walls or partitions. Carter has tried all sorts of shapes from linear rectangles and squares to these more fluid ones.

We love the galvanized studs showing.

We’d choose plywood because we think it would be easier to manage. Carter used drywall, which tends to be crumbly. But come to think of it, we were quite taken by walls we saw at an artist’s studio, with rough, random holes cut out of the sheetrock. When we asked Why? What are they for? we got the answer: Just because. He liked them.
