Says Merrill, "Motivated by curiosity about the architecture that surrounds us and how it reflects larger ideas of beauty, class, romanticism and even perfection—I started to photograph homes, and eventually photographed thousands. I then digitally assembled and reassembled these photographs to create new images; each is typically made from several photographs of individual houses combined with tens to hundreds of smaller bits and pieces from other photographs of houses in the region. At first these images might look plausible; but closer inspection reveals that they are fabricated, and in fact illogical."

Harry Seidler: Architecture, Art, and Collaborative Design

"Architecture, Art, and Collaborative Design" is a traveling exhibition celebrating the 19th anniversary of leading 20th century Australian architect Harry Seidler's birth. The exhibition traces Seidler's key role in bringing Bauhaus principles to Australia and identifying his distinctive place and hand within and beyond modernist design methodology. 15 featured projects, including five houses and five towers in Sydney, Australia, and five major commissions beyond Sydney focus on the Austrian-born architect's lifelong creative collaborations, inspired by Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and other artistic visionaries such as artists Alexander Calder and Sol LeWitt, architects Marcel Breuer and Oscar Niemeyer, engineer Pier Luigi Nervi, and photographer Max Dupain.
