this sea of gold. the gallery floor @blockfort.columbus until the 31st. it was essential to create an experience for the viewer, i wanted to transform the gallery space in order to force a change of perception. this floor is made from survival blankets, these mylar blankets are often the first act of kindness a refugee has encountered since their forced journey began by water or by land. these blankets are an act of love, a concern for well being. a welcoming. the floor also represents the promise of America, this land of immigrants. the promise of a new life and the golden reflection of bounty. you walk on. the viewer is standing on, walking on the first of a kindness and the promise to an other. the viewer becomes privileged. a literal reflection of personal privilege and accountability. the face of inaction reflected.
