  • Catalogue Essay

    Please note this example is in its un-adorned state and has not been completed by adding the multi-color duct tapes to the table and chairs. The image of the work installed with the tape is only an example image. The work begins as a crate with the contents of the piece contained within. Once opened the sides of the crate become the table top and inner shelves. Once assembled it is decorated. The tape is removed when it is packed up again.
