Front Door, 2012

Wood, vinyl tape, acrylic, rope, carbon transfer, dimensions variable.

Shown in Public Trust, Flux Factory, Queens, NY

This installation playfully tracks the design of a new, more accessible, public entrance to the Flux Factory Gallery space. “Front Door” makes transparent the process of designing and funding this capital improvement project and examines the difficulties that arise when trying to balance Flux’s mandate to facilitate new artwork with the realities of the construction process.

Installation includes a model, schematic designs and rope ladder that leads to a folder with all the correspondance and project details. Because of the conflicts with zoning and permits, I asked the director of Flux Factory to censor - black line - these documents.
