Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers. Dream The Combine

Dream The Combine is the creative practice of artists and architects Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers, based in Minneapolis, MN. Working with engineer Clayton Binkley and a trusted group of fabricators, Dream The Combine 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.
 
Jennifer Newsom received her Bachelor of Arts from Yale College and her Master of Architecture from Yale University, where she also received the Fermin Ennis Memorial Fellowship and the Anne C.K. Garland award for academic achievement. While at Yale, she organized the two-day symposium Black Boxes: Enigmas of Space and Race held at Yale School of Architecture. Recently appointed an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota School of Architecture, she teaches undergraduate and graduate architectural design studios. Using race as a provocative impetus for her work, she is concerned with surface perceptions and the structures that support those readings. She has worked with firms as diverse as Adjaye Associates, Deborah Berke Partners, Robert A.M. Stern Architects, and Cooper Robertson. Her writing has been featured in Metropolis magazine and Africana: The Encyclopedia of African and African - American Experience.

Tom Carruthers received his Bachelor of Arts in drawing and sculpture from Brown University and his Master of Architecture from Yale University. His early work consists of site- specific sculptures that explore landscape as metaphor and image as space. For four years, he was lead assistant for artist Ursula von Rydingsvard, helping with the construction of over 20 large scale sculptural works. As a licensed architect, he worked alongside the late Charles Gwathmey and at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, developing early concept proposals with formal strategies that integrate context, complex geometry, and material construction. In addition to his creative practice, Tom is co-owner of Jacobsson Carruthers, a metal fabrication shop in Minneapolis.
