Materiality, process, horizontality
People peer in the doorway, comment on the fragrance of the materials but venture in only on invitation mostly. Stepping carefully around they look closely, one or two stood on the chair. Comments range from 'its like looking at a world without rubbish where you can breathe" (Dan) to "it needs blood" (Robert). Everything was gathered from the bush around TLC, the Wellington art school where I've begun the advanced dip, and will be returned at the end of the week to the bush. It is a site specific installation of short duration, a collaboration of four, and some of the materials are ever changing because of the intense heat in the studio, the sun pours in all day and the concrete floor absorbs it and releases it when the room cools, affecting the appearanceof some things.
