Reconstructing Space - The Body Shadow

                                         Further images  /  Return to 1999

Description: Two Action Researcher/Performers uniformly dressed in black were positioned against various architectural elements in public space sites.  As they held a static position, replicating the permanence of the architecture itself, another Action Researcher/Performer used white chalk to draw around their bodies or shadows.  The positioning of bodies in close and unusual proximity to urban infrastructure challenged the design and functionality of the forms and spaces created.
