I want to test my ability to hold in my mind the proportions and directional orientation of spaces I inhabit daily and remake them in another place - with tape defining horizontals and cord hung with plumb bobs defining vertical edges. I intend to make a 3-D wire-frame of remembered space. What better place to conduct this performative mapping than in the very disorienting space of a mine?. Wire-frame constructions today exist almost exclusively on the computer screen. The computer is one of my favorite tools, but I like conflating the ideas of line as a geometric concept and line as something physical (tape, cord, wire, etc.). There is an appealing awkwardness to things made plumb by rudimentary means, which stands in contrast to what can easily be achieved with a keystroke. The piece would function as a performance but I imagine it primarily as an exhibition of its remains. I think the "line drawing" in space would be formally beautiful. And because the objects and intervals in most urban domestic spaces are common, the lines might suggest to the viewer rooms and furniture and appliances, all reduced to their edges. It would have a ring of familiarity as a map of the kind of spaces we know.
