The Bodies Brush Together with a Rustle of Dry Leaves, 2009
Wood, fabric, painted leaves, audio, 8 x 24 x 3’

The Bodies Brush Together with a Rustle of Dry Leaves was the result of research I had been dealing with how we perceive uncanny spaces. In particular, this piece looks at the way in which certain elements of nature and the woods at night are experienced, raising questions of how this space is perceived and what constructs one brings when experiencing this environment. The work was constructed of 2 x 4s and fabric to make a narrow corridor and was angled so that one could not see very far ahead of them. The fabric made the space dark and moved as one walked through. On the floor of the corridor was white painted leaves and audio of walking in the woods layered with louder trigger noises.
