A Short Room Full of Tall People
nylon fabric, fabricated steel, crowd
100' x 25' x 30'
Created for the 2005 Scope:NY. Over the course of an evening, a bright red fabric ceiling slowly descended from an initial height of thirty feet, until it rested directly on the heads and outstretched hands of the crowd. The wide open event space was gradually compressed into an intimate setting. The sculpture uses simple geometry and light to explore the interdependencies of architectural and social space.
