Decorated Space

I realized my fascination with wall's that have a three dimensional quality must derive from my visit this summer to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Jefferson's front entry was designated as a didactic environment to promote the expansion of the country-conceptually and physically. Visitor's commented on the "strange furniture of the walls" Most objects are artifacts from Lewis and Clarke's Expedition and others are maps from his surveyor father and a clock that envelopes the front door with mechanical splendor.
