Tape Walks



Tape Walks explores the intimate desire to have the viewer inhabit my own body during the making of the piece. A projection at each end of the hallway shows the act of me putting down a taped line on the floor. As the viewer interacts with the taped line they either see me coming towards them or away from them putting down the tape; the viewer exists in the space in between the two projections of myself and becomes a part of the narrative.

Tape Walks also investigates the different ways a body can move through a space (hallway) that is conventionally only moved through by walking in a straight line. The viewer is not only confronted with images of myself awkwardly placing the tape, but also with the jagged tape on the ground that illustrates unconventional movement.
