The Growing Metaphysical Void at the Center of My Bedroom Ceiling
spit wads from magazine ads, dimensions vary, 2010

Shooting thousands of spit wads through a straw at the ceiling to create stalactite-like forms. The stalactites were mostly created in my studio in Brooklyn over the past year and then brought to the gallery, installed on the ceiling.

Over 20 hours I shot spit wads at the ceiling to add further to the installation. The video is created from still images taken every 30 seconds during the installation. The paper for the wads is taken from magazine ads.
