Un-vironment 1, 2010. Installation view. Cut and carved drywall, wood, spray paint. 8 x 16 x 8 feet. This piece was created for the Renaissance Center in Tennessee. It begins with an 8-foot wide opening and gets progressively narrower, playing with the concept of perspective, foreshortening and drawing in general. At the center, the width is only 20 inches wide, squeezing the viewer who will either have to turn and shimmy sideways to continue through or turn and go back. In either case, the viewer is made conscious of her own body and relative size in the space.
