Since 2007, Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe have been collaboratively drawing on a series of historical and fictional narratives to create large-scale, mazelike architectural installations. Their explorations of architecture as immersive sculpture are realized by reimagining dystopian visions, psychotic episodes, and the workings of drug-related subcultures. Their joint practice has led to solo exhibitions at Art Basel: Basel and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA, as well as numerous group exhibitions worldwide. In 2014, Robert Miller Gallery commissioned and featured their collaborative site-specific large-scale dystopian installation, titled Profanity in the Sky.
