Walking Marking 1 performance

Walking-Marking 1 performance still.  October 12, 2009. 1 0:24 a.m., Johnson, VT.  Click here to watch a brief video about the project This installation was a durational performance lasting 24 days. Each day, I spent between 2-4 hours walking back and forth between two walls, making a graphite mark on each wall each time I arrived at it. Over time, the accumulated labor evolved into two drawings: 1) two gridlike wall drawings each made of rows composed of 9,441 graphite hatchmarks and 2) a straight bandlike floor drawing made as my continual footsteps burnished the floor. At the end of the installation, the wall drawings were painted over and the floor drawing was left intact.
