A SHADOW TOO HEAVY...


 

42 hour durational drawing performance — MADE BY ERASING, IN WHICH THE DEBRIS LEFT BEHIND CONSTITUTES THE FINISHED WORK
completed in 7, 6 hour shifts over the course of 1 week— 
documentation images taken at the end of each shift 

powdered graphite is buffed and burnished on a 7’ x 8’ section of wall over the course of 6 hours

each subsequent 6 hour session is spent methodically removing the burnished graphite from the wall surface using white plastic erasers

at the end of each 6 hour session a documentation image is taken

all eraser shavings are preserved, as they are the drawing

the shavings are a physical quantification of time— 
each shard is embedded with the graphite that was once on the wall
and the physical exertion required to remove it
