While at Irving Street Projects, Teschner used the storefront at ISP as both a workshop and exhibition space, creating a progressive series of large architecturally-inspired textile works exploring the natural and man-made forces that gradually transform and erode our environment.
Teschner's project was both research-based and intuitive, centering around processes of building and decomposition. She wrote, “The governing idea is that the city, like a mountain range, erodes gradually to become the grains of sand that line the ocean floor.” Her project also considered concrete as the inverse of that erosion, a liquid composed of fragments of stone. Teschner used fabric, ink washes, and paper to emulate the nature of concrete and explore its formation and decay.
