Contact Paper Instillation
I installed this piece in Gallery 2 at Washington State University. I wanted to create a "nonspace". The white cube is subverted in that the art is what traditionally isn't art. Evidence that anything was actually done to the space is only outrightly evident to those who are familiar with the space. Even then, the piece may not be noticed or accounted for, until long after it is taken out of the gallery. I was struck by the white painted door in the corner of the gallery, and wanted to deal with it by making it look like it was back in its original state. Why would covering it white make it less noticeable? It makes just as much sense as putting wood contact paper over the hardwood floors.
