Plaster, paint, holes on wall

Begins with the remains of a previous installation that reveals the stratigraphy of the gallery walls, suggesting a range of connotations around the history of the wall. Above the gouges I grid out a circular chart from an engineering dissertation, and drill holes into the wall. Loosely meant to impose order and rationality (engineering chart) over chaos (gouges, holes, destruction). The final element is a circular area in the center of almost indiscernible painted colored patches suggestive of mold, seeping liquids, or old stains from uncertain activity. The piece creates a constellation effect lreferencing history, mourning, absence, change, and the mysterious order that exists even in chaos and dissolution.
