Tuned Mass features “Board-up” and “Lean-to”, the latest evolution of Faheem Majeed’s Shacks and Shanties installation series. These current works speak to his interest in the signs of devaluing neighborhoods, the board-up initially serving to protect the investment of the house while serving as a clear notice of abandonment. The lean-to is the stripped-down form of the shack, the simplest form used for shelter and survival.
