You Are Not Alone

A classroom with closed doors is perceived as a safe space where one can share knowledge only to those within its boundaries. This piece of glass above the blackboard appears to be flush against the wall, but upon closer inspection, one finds that there are small gaps on either side — breaking the illusion of the safe space. The act of binding with yarn serves to make the broken illusion visible and tangible, creating a simultaneity of internal and external with a color that echoes the greenish-blue tinge of the glass.

This work was exhibited in Mapping Thinking Spaces (25 April 2013), at the School of Visual Arts, 133 West 21st Street, Room 404C.
