Touching Distance (An Eclipse)

Sheer fabric, silk, straight pins, insulation fire brick (148lbs , 6’2”)


Suspended from the ceiling hangs a skin. Pinned to the skin is an image of an intimate, but barely legible self portrait printed onto silk. Standing across from the skin are forty insulation fire bricks stacked 6’2". A brick tugs on the corner of the skin and two more lie nearby, as if the skin had managed to carry them there. The forty-three bricks total measure up to the height and the weight of my first lover. The lights are used in order to emphasize the space between the bodies. In the shadow cast on the wall is written a text which acknowledges the dualities between distance and desire.
