Colin Keefe


I make ink and pencil drawings and sculptures that draw from architectural pictorial schema to create images of built environments.

Lately I’ve been working on a set of drawings that explore methods for breeding buildings using organic models - multicellular organisms’ reproductive and propulsion methods, as well as pollination methods employed by plants.

My "Architectural Pollination" drawing series implements a biological interpretation of a city’s evolution: buildings breed, fuse and fission, and consume one another, all different strategies for acquiring desirable properties from one another and improving one’s genetic (building) stock.
