Walker Evans Builds a Chair

Most of my work has a double life; one fictional and one pragmatic. This chair will ultimately been used in The Little Building Cafe, a project we are doing here in Starkville, MS. But the way that I got to the method of making was to ask myself, "If Walker Evans was in need of a chair how would he make one?" That got me to really look at the chairs around me, the disguarded chairs everywhere and how to make them as precise and clear as a Walker Evans image.
