Storage Spaces: An Alternative Organization 2009
Created during a six-week Project Space Residency at Headlands Center for the Arts this installation is a 1.5” to 40’ scale, topographic model of the landscape surrounding the art center. I made it entirely from materials found in the attic storage spaces of the two main buildings. Disused furniture, abandoned art projects, outmoded office equipment, audiocassette archives, old exhibition catalogs, buckets of paint, rolls of carpet, etc.—the physical residue of Headlands Center for the Arts' twenty-plus year history. The accumulation is both remarkable and mundane...
I began by isolating an area of the landscape proportional to the space demarcated by the columns and in the same orientation as the building. Sea level is at 2 feet off the floor, rising to 46.5" (600’) at its highest point.
