site-specific performance for two council workers and two line marking machines. 60 x 8 m, Dirrabarri Lane, Parramatta
Two workers receive council work orders to paint lines in a laneway using line marking machines. Rather than relating to standard unit of measurement, the instructions in the work order call upon each worker to investigate their own subjective choices and perceptions of space. Once the two workers have met in the middle of the lane they are tasked with carefully replicating each other's lines, thus embodying the perceptual choices of the other.
This work was commissioned by Parramatta Artists Studios for Parramatta Lanes festival 2019
