Floor, 1-25

Installation (Mixed Media)
Jennifer Marman & Daniel Borins

Floor, 1-25 is a modular architectural construct of 25 rectangular 30”x 36” panels of varying heights, covered with synthetic wood laminate. As a commentary on minimalism and its absorption into the everyday commodity, the floor retains the notion of the store panel sample, while settling into the gallery in an oblique and intrusive manner. Floor 1-25 inverts the viewing experience, relegating the viewer to the role of subject, as he or she is exhibited on its different platforms. This sculpture is considered for its mass and object status as much as for its topographical nature. Floor 1-25 is both beheld visually and moved through physically by the viewer.
