Project Description

The Tarot Card Deck is a means of flexibly organizing, and cataloguing a set of sources for my architectural thesis; each card represents the ideas of an artist, writer, poet, or place pertaining to the dominant themes and schools of thought surrounding the work.  The deck is based on the framework of a traditional tarot card deck and consists of four 'Houses' and one set of 'Major Arcana'; these are the House of Ravens, Masks, Pentacles, and Stones, representing the themes of Temporality, the Uncanny, Atmospheres, and Place respectively.  Though this framework, one can group the sources in previously conceived relationships, or discover startlingly new conversations between the different schools of thought that might not have otherwise been seen.
