Taking Up Space (video still), 2003
Paper, Tape, Single Channel Video, 18m 0s, Dimensions Variable
In "Taking Up Space," I line the inside of a room with paper, creating a one to one scale map--an interior skin. What was a room becomes a model of a room. And I crush the model, turning the room from architecture into an oversized paper ball--an ephemeral object with little more weight than a passing idea. This act of transformation bridges my physical, mental, and visual understandings of the space.
