I Fear White Paper
Duration: 120 minutes
Materials: white paper, wood, charcoal, ink.
The idea behind this action is to create a space to occupy within a limitless time span.
I built a white cubicle made of a wood structure covered with paper, then I entered it with drawing materials and without a device to tell time.
The experiment was done in a room with only myself and a camera documenting the action which lasted two hours.
On the inside, the sound of charcoal on paper was loud and the white paper felt intimidating.
I played, sang, drew, wiggled the cubicle and fell with it. I landed and laid down in it rubbing my body against the paper full of charcoal.
White paper didn't feel any less scary. I Stepped out.
As chaotic as the paper turned on the inside, the camera only captured silent whiteness.
