Betwixt, 2004

Installation at the Motoazabu Gallery in Tokyo, Japan, curated by Zero Higashida, 14’L x 7’W x 8’H, newspaper, cloth.

“Betwixt” is made from the New York Times, and a Japanese newspaper available in the United States. The two newspapers are transformed into fragile architectures which intertwine around each other in the ancient path of a maze. At the edges of the sculpture are micro-scaffolds made of newspaper, as if the piece were always under construction, like the edges of a city. This piece poetically captures my feeling about my first trip to Japan, immersing myself in new information both cultural and linguistic, and my anticipation of wandering in cultural paths both new and old.
