Anyone can find or make one or more rooms of any shape, size, proportion, and color — then furnish them perhaps, maybe paint some things or everything. Everyone else can come in and, if the room(s) are furnished, they also can arrange them, accommodating themselves as they see fit. Each day things will change.

On yellow

Ever since the opening glean, tug and assemblage on Thursday night, I’ve been obsessed by the over-representation of yellow in the space. Mickie’s banana-coloured kindergarten chairs litter the room and the palette is all yellows, woods, oranges and beiges. Yesterday I composed a collage of cool-coloured pictures on one wall, and encouraged the continual chip-away of the jigsaw puzzle, which makes a water/sky aspect.

It’s a certain type of pushing and pulling – an aesthetic or compositional version – in which I am forever chasing what I perceive to be a perfect spectral balance. I’m waiting for a punter to sail through the door with a ceiling-to-floor wall hanging in aqua or peppermint, or an avocado rug, navy blue wardrobe, etc. I imagine that this punter is Carl Sagan, circa 1980, Kaprow book in-hand, called to the Locksmith with cosmological intent. We’d talk over the Ikea couch and car-bumper stack and we’d liken this project to the dynamic interplay of organic compounds.
