I had an idea for something in your space, I was thinking about doing something kind of ambitious, but then I had this idea to do something that is abit lighter. The idea would be wall vinyl, like a text piece on the wall, maybe wall vinyl maybe like words that would be projected, painted in sign painted or something, and it would be a list of places in the house, that you could never see. Like, behind the fridge, or underneath the bookshelf or at the very end of your shoe or above the door not the door itself but above it or.. behind the hot water cabinet, your house seemed to have so many funny nooks like funny built ins and nooks, and maybe some places that haven’t seen the light or haven’t been illuminated for a long time. So I thought it would be nice to make a list of places that haven’t seen the light or haven’t been accessed and have just existed as these closed sealed pockets. Just an idea, and it relates to this conversation I had in the engineering department, the people who run that corridor, so I went to that corridor where the internet was first invented, and I asked the PA to the dean, I said could we use the vitrine’s and she said yeah it reminds me of this principal of uncertainty which is that when you look at something it inevitably changes it. When you look at an atom by shining a light on it you change it and you can never see what it’s like on its own, I guess, you can never see something in its truest mode when you start looking at it, and I thought that would be a nice sort of idea for the show. There are also these images I am going to send you that might be nice to print and frame and have in the show, so that’s some ideas, let me know what you think.
