Where we begin and end
Where we begin and end
Ink, soap, water, soil, plastic vials and bubble wands, end table, and sensitive plants (Mimosa pudica)
2015

Where we begin and end was a participatory installation in which visitors contributed to the wall painting during the course of the exhibition. Vials with bubble wands filled with ink and bubble solution were inset into an end table and were used to create the markings on the wall. As the ink bubbles which were blown popped and splattered on the wall, droplets of ink would rain down on the Mimosa pudica (sensitive plants) which would visibly react by closing up their leaves.
