Summary Wood, sensor, found office chair, DVD player and screen, spy-hole, carpet 1.9x2.5x7m. The ghost of a mad astormonk inhabits the space the viewer sits in. The Room That Was creates a new learning space for the improvement of the unco-operative body – a mobile mnemonia room. It is a place where the subject’s memory can be rendered to suit other points of view. The subject can be indoctrinated anytime, anywhere, and by any method inside the The Room That Was – especially designed for the dimensions of the average sized human body (astromonk – an incipient being). It is a mobile asylum for the European consciousness (much like Australia).
Notes On display 1 February – 23 February 2008 at Westspace.
