Found objects and video 2005
While continuing discussions on histories of places and commoditized objects, the intent of this piece is to create a sort of shrine that refers to the ritual place that was created when Rui Sekido performed in the Eyedrum parking lot. Through his use of the bamboo and rope, he initially aestheticized them, maybe even blessed them. My use and reuse of those things extends their life spans as aestheticized objects. The use of solar energy to light it is a bonus that adds the element of it being directly connected to the source that allows all of us to even be here. I’d like to thank Peter Bahouth for lending me his solar setup and Duane Georges for help with the installation.
