plaster, drywall, pine; steel light stands, 60-watt bulbs, electrical cable (size varies)
The wall is built floor to ceiling with a slight curve at one end and projects into the centre of the exhibition space. It has been built up with plaster “bumps” which are hollow in the back to accommodate light bulbs installed on specially built stands. The light bulbs heat the bumps as well as softly illuminating them through the opening at one end of the wall: they are the sole light source in the work.
