Medium: two 2x4 Pinewood

Fall 2019

Dimensions: 26 x 19 Inches

 

"This is a symbolic representation of the everyday light we use using two pieces of 2 x 4 pine wood. As an interactive art piece, the audience is naturally driven to the incompleteness of the switch and participate in the process of making it complete. Through assembling the pieces ourselves, we are able to reconsider the necessity and labor that is put into turning on the light switch every time we use it. Furthermore, by rescaling the size of the light switch, we can compare our habits of turning on the light switch with a flick of a finger to the experience of actually having to turn on the switch with a full grip of the hand, re-emphasizing the concept of the everyday labor."
