  From 2012 - 2015, I worked with a group of artists led by  Paul Discoe  and organized by  Jesse Schlesinger  to build a house using traditional Japanese joinery. Only some of us were trained woodworkers, but the building process became part of our practice, as detailed in our teacher’s book  Zen Architecture .   In the spirit of what the house eventually became – a classroom – we learned as we went. All of the major work was performed off-site, then the pieces were brought to site for assembly. The barn raising was an all-hands-on-deck situation, and after such a long time coming, a truly joyous event. These images celebrate the process, which took place over many, many seasons.
