Using the shopping mall and the parking lot as formal and conceptual frameworks, this piece examines consumption as a modern form of worship. Paved Paradise is an interactive exhibition and is part of an ongoing series of mazes executed through various virtual and physical mediums. I employ symmetry and patterns to present the shopping mall as a temple of the golden age of capitalism and the parking lot as a labyrinth.
