How to put up a shelf (I)2011
text / audio / performance / installation
I videoed myself putting up a shelf in my studio, and then reviewed the footage, recording all the decisions, no matter how small, that I could see myself making.
Taking a Decision to comprise a Question and an Answer e.g.
Q: Do I want that?
D: I want that.
...I wrote what I believed were the questions I was asking during the process, e.g. ‘Is it level?’, ‘Is the drill set to the correct speed?’ The resultant list of 553 questions became the first part of my open-ended preoccupation with shelves.
