Light Fall
Installation, Spring 2007
In collaboration with Tanaz Moddaber

A multi-layered curtain of hair was suspended outside the house, across two support columns of the elevated subway track in Brooklyn, New York.  The curtain of hair becomes a landscape through which one can traverse, and is a physical manifestation of the vibrations and wind created by the subway just outside of a bedroom window.  At first it is observed from a distance.  After observation, complete submersion.

In addition to assisting with the installation, my role was to photograph the hair and record a video of Tanaz submerging herself in the hair.  To the right are still frame images from the video are shown on the upper right.

Tanaz, if you're reading this...I miss you and I'm coming to visit you in Berlin!
