Status is an ongoing self production and self publication project which is created from my hand drawings, and reproduced with mimeograph printing technique.

The drawings are abstract fascination by ordinary architecture, architectural elements and architectural protocols of power. The drawings show a suspended state of the relation between power and architecture, in massive and solid structures placed on fragile legs (on wheels).

The project is for reproducing and printing with stencil print technique to bring two issues to discussion. First, the body performance of reproduction of power and propaganda; and second, the improvisation of a person and the apparatus of production in process of reproduction.
