Reading the Room

Spring 2017

Reading the Room was a series of site interventions within RISD crit room, Fletcher 409, in collaboration with Marie Otsuka. Using the existing conditions of the space, what gets left behind after a critique, we developed a series of installations that speak about artistic practice.

Installations included: an arrangement of chairs according to modes of conversation, all the tacks that were there before (it took about 3,000), light through the windows traced on the floor. A Handbook for Reading the Room documented these installations and catalogued all of our artistic references, the things we were thinking and discussing while working in that space.
