PAPER OVER LEAD

Paper Over Lead, 2016, site specific installation: paper, pulleys, sash weights, 6 x 5 x 13 feet

Five four-to-eight pound lead and cast iron sash weights are suspended using twined mulberry paper and wall mounted pulleys. The work is 13 feet high and installed in the walls of a sky light. The paper is central to maintaining the equilibrium of the weights and pulleys system. When we look at machines we typically fetishize the hardware when it may be invisible labor of the softer elements (software) that keeps everything together.
