Proposal Title: something like a black-hole covered up with aluminum foil, 05/03/2008, Installation
Proposal Synopsis: A space enclosed in reflective glass. The reflective side of the glass will be towards the outside of the space, reflecting the viewer back to themselves while preventing the viewer from seeing into the space.
From the inside of the space, you would be able to see out to the other viewers, but they would not be able to see you. I say you would be able to see out to the other viewers because you will not be able to enter the space. Those who are in this space have found themselves to be within it. The space has swallowed them.
The construction should have the appearance of glittery high-tech components sloppily put together, with small gaps at intersections. A viewer would be able to peek through the empty space through these small gaps. The inside of the space will be dark as the reflective glass prevents most light from entering.
The project is to imply a space that does its best not to be noticed as a space. A space that is closed to inspection or review. A space known only to those within it. It is something like a black-hole covered up with aluminum foil.
