Project Description

This installation is a slight deviation from the Not Not Glass series, where I am exploring similar materials and destructive means. In this case, rather than photographs, the piece takes the form of a protective three dimensional shelter built inside the gallery.

The exterior of the structure is defensive in nature. It is electrified with a high voltage static electrical current which repels visitors when two walls are touched at the same time. The surface has been scarred, cracked, and damaged by apparent attacks or possibly neglect. Walls are six inches thick, and constructed with brick, plywood, and insulation material. On the right of the structure, is an exhaust, which excretes golden thread, with remnants of trash, jewelry and feathers.

Originally, the interior space was to represent a warm shelter from these outside elements, but instead we find a possible crime or vanadism scene with a brick and broken glass. Was this brick thrown through a window? Was there a scene of violence? Or is it a scene of simple entropy and dilapidation?
