Half of North
This series of performative spatial drawings was created during a two-week residency in Johnson, Vermont, which sits at the latitude of 44.63 degrees north. The site-specific work used 12 elastic strands to draw in 3D physical space, directly connecting to the room’s windows, walls, ceiling and floor, and creating new dialogues with these architectural elements.The strands intersected the room to form new segments of negative space, creating new passageways for the body to move through.
The lines of the north angle and half of the north angle (22.31 degrees north) were used as datum lines around which the strands were each anchored at three points. Over the course of the several weeks, one set of points was moved periodically to reconstruct the drawing into a new configuration. ‘Half of North’ was under constant transformation as it slowly moved through and around the space.
