cast paper, furniture, text, rusted nails, audio, video
variable dimensions
In a gallery space in the University Student Center, an installation was set up at the beginning of the academic semester to simulate a course registration hall. Students entered through roped-off sections and encountered paper furniture covered with rusted nails, chairs placed at tables with vibrating machines, audio tapes, or electric counters. Instead of finding answers, they were confronted with questions. As they left this dysfunctional, fragile environment, they encountered a sign that read "YOU ARE LATE TO REGISTER".
