The visible deterioration of physical scaffolds and structures is a repeated theme in Sara Parent-Ramos’ work. She sees a direct allegorical relationship between the scaffolded scenarios she creates and the social and psychological processes that are the invisible scaffolding supporting human society and psychology. Mental scaffolds have the potential to both support exploration and expansion and perpetuate unjust social situations (like inequality). She makes mental and social scaffolds corporal, and invites the viewer to consider the scaffolds that support their own outlook and social context.
