The point of entry on each window installation begins with choosing the main material element with which to build. This selection is determined by things found in our immediate surrounding within the shop.
Shirts, bags, mops, boxes, paper towel, price tags and in this case white paint buckets, are part of the spaces inherent constituents- which are displayed with the least amount of added materials possible.
A monotone (often white) palette is chosen in order to accentuate the volumes, shapes and overall composition of the sculpture and to blur the relationship and familiarity one has to the object in question. The shapes created take form according to the vitrine scale; height, length, depth, and other characteristics of the building in relation to its perceiver are taken into account.
Added to that is the tendency toward modularity, thus making it possible to deconstruct and reassemble each set multiple times, before passing onto a new theme. This part is open ended. I will change installations when I feel it’s time, or have a new idea, or get tired of the last one…
It is this set of parameters that forms a common thread between each window installation I’ve created since the opening.
