The Wherehouse

The Wherehouse is a time-based public art installation that explores time and audience perception. The idea of the installation was to see how the visual image of the stacked boxes and the warehouse workers relationships changed over time.

Dressed as identical warehouse workers in coveralls, performers stacked and re-stacked boxes in different geometric shapes and patterns over the course of a number of hours. The workers movements were extremely slow and deliberate. It would be easier to witness the movement of the hands of a clock move than it would be to follow the actions of the workers.

As an audience member you could watch the action of the moment and the orientation of the boxes for a while, then walk away. After a while audience members could return to see how the overall visual image had changed over any given period of time.

The installation is titled The Wherehouse because it could be performed in numerous locations.
