Tiles | Canvas, 2017

Site-specific light and space installation

Tiles | Canvas is a site-specific project that is based on deconstructing the space and keeping all the parts in it. By removing the tiles, the guts of the building were exposed, creating a new dimension in the space, the void.
This work is a commentary on painting since the ceiling tiles look like canvases that are painted with light. Shadows and shades of color are all part of the work.
Overall, the project raises the questions of materiality and immateriality, physical vs. ephemeral, permanent vs. temporary.
