site-specific works > Inclination Inspection Drawing
2010; ink on paper; 5.5 x 780 inches (13.97 x 1981.2 cm).
At the Drawing Center, New York, I created a 65-foot-long piece to draw attention to a normally unnoticed aspect of the space: the sloping floor’s deviation from a level plane. My drawing filled the area of discrepancy — a very long and slender triangle — and referred to the natural forces and movements that cause built structures to shift. The height of the drawing began on the right end at 1/4-inch and grew to 5-1/2-inches on the left end. As installed in the gallery, the piece subtly affected one’s perception of the space. After a 2012 renovation, the new gallery floor is no longer sloped.
