Baltimore 2008/Nun 2008

These two pieces recycle parts from Adapted. With Baltimore I paired and took the function out of disparate, nostalgic found materials. My favorite part is the painted shadow on the floor. When the light caught it just right it gave off a distorted confusing sensation. Nun is like Adapted in that when the viewer stands in a specific place the white gap between the wall and the panel disappears and the whole piece looks flat. Again I was activating the materials so that they appeared to have a narrative or to be motion stopped in time like a reel from a film.
