DREAM THE COMBINE IS THE CREATIVE PRACTICE OF ARTISTS AND ARCHITECTS JENNIFER NEWSOM AND TOM CARRUTHERS, BASED IN MINNEAPOLIS, MN.
Partners in work and life, we create site-specific installations exploring metaphor, imaginary environments, and perceptual uncertainties that cast doubt on our known understanding of the world.
Our work is deeply collaborative, and our studio name speaks to this process. Working with engineer Clayton Binkley and a trusted group of fabricators, we investigate the conceptual overlaps in art, architecture, and cultural theory through structures that disrupt assumed dichotomies and manipulate the boundary between real and illusory space. We are intrigued by forgotten places, sites of transportation, and unpredictable audiences. We consistently seek out spaces on the margins in our work.
We have been featured in The New York Times, Huffington Post, Vancouver Sun, FoxNews, CTV, Metropolis Magazine, Modern Midwest, The Architects Newspaper, and Africana: The Encyclopedia of the African and African-American Experience. They are finalists in the 2018 Young Architects Program sponsored by MoMA PS1.
