Embracing Impermanence, 2002

Art and Design Gallery, The University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS

Embracing Impermanence is a performative installation working with time, residue, and process. The space is built as a result of the repetitive act of stenciling words on the wall and erasing them. Thus, the eraser crumbs and the blue chalk become the raw material with which to make a new stencil on the floor. This action was performed daily at random times throughout the two-week duration of the exhibition.

Mixed media: blue chalk line, graphite, eraser, stencils.

Dimensions: 8 H x 7 W x 10 D FT.
