Why Standing is Not so Simple

Why Standing is not So Simple, 2013


Why Standing is Not so Simple  was realized while working with architectural salvage experts in a 200 mile radius. The materials for the project were donated and borrowed: scraps, damaged wood, metal, lighting fixtures, incomplete sets. The project reclaimed cast aside parts with the intention of developing an environment that referenced the structural ruins of a home interior. Stacked and suspended large cabinets formed walls, archways and columns for the viewer to navigate within. Objects were incorporated into the existing architecture of the museum: holes cut into walls, light fixtures embedded, metal bars bent into the window covering.  The installation gave reference to the precarious nature of decay and structural ruins.
