I-Park residency 2012 Participating in an Ephemeral Travesia

In September of 2012 I was invited to participate in a collective exploration into the ephemeral aspects of architecture.  This involved a 2 week residency where I participated in poetic acts and architectural interventions proposed by the 9 members of Open City, Chile, 1 video artist, 2 musicians and another architect who works with fabric formed concrete.  Together we explored and created aspects of ephemeral architecture leading up to a one day symposium where we engaged in open discussion with the public.

I instigated a blog to explore and document aspects of our travesia.  It can be viewed here:

Maya Cochrane is interested in exploring the ephemeral and transitory aspects of daily life. These explorations take the form of photo documentation, instillation, collaborative work, writing, drawing and modeling. Formally trained in Architecture at the University of Manitoba followed by the Bartlett School of Architecture, Maya's philosophy is to operate between the thresholds of Architecture, Art, Instillation, Interaction & Design. Currently Maya is working in an Architecture practice and in her spare time is exploring the meditative practice of drawing and doodling at scales of 100mm square to 100cm square. Zentangle art.
