Project Description: Site Specific, Time Based Installation:
This semester-long, cumulative, site specific installation took place at Babson College from September '05 to January '06.
With the help of project curator Danielle Krcmar, I worked with a group of MBA students from the course 'Product Design and Development,' who met weekly as part of the design process toward the development of a marketable product. This group agreed to be the subject my project by allowing me to film their weekly meetings. At intervals between meetings, I watched the film and noted repeating events relating to movement, behavior, incident and interaction, ad minutium.
I marked the room itself each week, leaving abstract, representative marks of everything I'd noted. The chairs, table, ceiling, walls and floor are among the surfaces on which trace interpretations of events accumulated. Students not involved in the project used the room to study and meet; over the course of the project, as the meetings progressed, these marks were less easy to overlook. At the close of the project, all accumulated traces of collective exchange were present in the room, and the group had just about concluded their project.
