ATRIUM 408B at Governors Island
September 5th -
ONE CONTINUOUS LINE: A MEDITATION ON TIME AND SPACE
Permanent marker on stairwell wall. Governors Island Art Fair, Sept. 2015.
ATRIUM 408B is part of Architectural Topographies, an ongoing project that records the actual experience of time and space.
This particular conception—a continuous line that was drawn 0.7 miles around a stairwell over 10 days time--is essentially a record of lived time.
All-encompassing for the viewer standing within the swirled lines, ATRIUM allows an immersive experience of perspective and scale and interior and exterior. Although linear evidence of the concentrated lived experience builds in the space in graphic extremes of black and white, it paradoxically blurs assumed boundaries between origin and destination, inside and outside, and—ultimately--self and other.
ATRIUM 408B was created in an abandoned 19th Century house on Governors Island’s Colonels Row. The meditative drawing enlivens the interior and provides a unique experience on the concept of time and space for those who enter the once-grand building in its present state of disrepair.
