Stuff Happening

A performance for Galataperform
Istanbul, Turkey
March 2008

‘Drawings’ were made with the dust and debris and general stuff which settles on the surfaces of the environment - places, people and things.

I rolled floors, furniture, walls, objects, cats, dogs and people’s clothing with a sticky lint roller (normally used for the purpose of keeping clothes clean and dust free). the resulting ‘drawings’ were peeled off the roller in 17 x 11 cm rectangles and arranged in a grid-like structure on the wall functioning as a landscape /map/archive/forensic data bank.
