Walking around the studio

I attached a cellphone to my right hand and made a video of what it might see and hear if it could as I walked around the studio. Then I separated the footage into individual frames and used a piece of newsprint paper to cover the part of the room that appeared in each frame, more or less. When I took the paper down after a few weeks, a little residue remained where each piece of paper had been wheat-pasted to the wall, ceiling or window. With this residue, my right hand’s “perspective” of walking became a temporary part of the studio – at night, the traces of wheat-pasted paper – traces of my hand’s movement while walking – resembled the layers of lights reflected in the Carpenter Center’s glass walls.  hm
