Yesterday I launched what I am referring to as a 'photoblog' on Instagram. Separate from my personal account, @Architectonike focuses on the places and things in which I find beauty and meaning as a professional. It is a visual space in which I can share snippets of the things that I study, namely, architecture, interiors, landscapes, objects, and, most importantly, the stories that these things tell.
Taking its name in part from Sir Philip Sidney's 'An Apology for Poetry, or The Defence of Poesy', @Architectonike acknowledges the practical and aesthetic, prosaic and poetic qualities of both architecture and decorative arts (a product, no doubt, of my object-based training at Sotheby's Institute) and celebrates the simple genius that is the balance in between.
