The Substation Box Office

Long shuttered, the box office has fallen into obsolescence and neglect. Tracing the interior architectural features of the box office through a moving projection, the work reveals lines and corners, evoking a resuscitation of the dead space. 

"The installation is a direct response to my experience of the box office. Based on my initial interactions with the Substation in 2008, I've understood the space as ignored, suffocated and defunct. Working on the first iteration the Rubble Project gave me a chance to experience the space more intimately –through my sensing of the room's features and history of use, I wanted to express the idea of transformation and shifts to indicate forthcoming changes within the box office."
