Day 1

A collaboration with Diane Bromberg produced for Pair-A-Sites organized by X-TRA.


A one-ton pile of sand was placed in the Community Room of the Armory Center for the Arts (Pasadena, California) to make people more conscious of how they used the room and to draw attention to how community space is shared. The diversity of the audience/participants (teachers and staff, school children, parents, Board members, lecturers, performers and artists) and their relative power to influence the use of the room, determined both the formal qualities of the piece and its lifespan. Though the installation was scheduled for one month, it was removed after 3 days.
